What is the Aldridge Great War Project?

In 2013 a group of local people got together to consider how Aldridge might commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Great War. By the time of the official launch of the Aldridge Great War Project (AGWP) on August 4th 2014, Aldridge School and local organisations, groups and businesses had pledged their support. The project is about people. We aim to research and record every Aldridge person who made a contribution to the Great War; to help local people to discover their own Great War ancestry and to broaden the knowledge and understanding of how the war affected individuals and our community Please take a look at our Project Activities page to find out more.

We are particularly keen that our young people should be given the opportunity to play a significant role and hope that by working together we can deliver a project that is worthy of the sacrifices made 100 years ago.
