Current projects/ Trenches Project - Garth Hill School, Bracknell
In keeping with the 100th anniversary of the end of WW1, the school has recreated a scene to show the conditions under which our troops fought the war
This project is to replicate as far as possible the WW1 trench scenario to give youngsters some idea of what their ancestors went through in defence of our country. It is clearly impossible to be 100% accurate but the youngsters could at least see some of the things referred to in history as real objects.
The project is initially for the pupils of Garth Hill but that will be extended to invite other schools in the area and eventually the general public will be included. Recently, the trench welcomed its first visitors, you can see more about that here:
It was a pleasure to welcome our first visitors to the WW1 Trench today, thank you @sandylaneyr5 for being wonderful guests. We are so pleased you enjoyed your visit today and that you are all eager to learn more about WW1! pic.twitter.com/laRhzA0D3Q— Garth Hill College (@GarthHillColl) May 23, 2019
ERC have been involved for several weeks in fitting out the trenches which have already been dug and have made excellent progress thanks to the efforts of Bruce in recruiting volunteers. However there is still a lot to do so please support Bruce as often as you can.
