War memorials in Powys
Powys War Memorials Project 2014 - 2019: A Mark of Respect.
The project commemorates the centenary of World War 1 and will run until October 2019.
Some of the aims of the project are to:
- Find, record and map all the war memorials in Powys.
- Provide funding (up to £5,000 per memorial) for World War 1 memorials in Powys to be repaired, restored or maintained.
- Provide funding (up to £200 per memorial) for the setting around the memorial, e.g. railings or paving slabs.
- Facilitate or organising free training for communities in Powys, e.g. about how to research names on war memorials.
- Work with communities in Powys to develop World War 1 walks and trails.
- Organise and facilitate World War 1 events and activities, such as film screenings or musical performances.
- Support other World War 1 programmes, projects and initiatives.
