THE call has gone out for World War One memorabilia for a display at The Courtyard.

This autumn, the Hereford arts centre is marking the centenary of the start of the First World War with a series of plays, workshops and films.

The finale will be a variety performance from community groups and choirs on November 11 called Lest We Forget.

Artefacts, family history research and memorabilia are all required for the display.

Curtis Fulcher, marketing and sales manager at the Courtyard, said: “We would love to hear from as many people as possible; no matter how small the story. "Herefordshire has a rich cultural history from experiences within the 1914-18 war and it would be great to capture some of the efforts that were played through farming, fighting or working at the munitions factory in Rotherwas”.

The artefacts and stories collected from this call out will go towards building the content for the variety show, as well as being displayed within the building during September to November.

Anyone who is able to donate for the performance can call The Courtyard’s marketing department on 01432 346513 or email competitions@courtyard.org.uk

OK, then can I suggest that on 11 November, as part of the 'Lest We Forget' event, Councillor Roger Phillips stands up and explains why it has taken three years for his wretched Skylon Business Park organisation to prepare a Lottery Heritage Fund application to restore the Empty Shell Shed at Rotherwas?
