Salute to researchers
LOOKING back over 2018, one could hardly have missed the hard work that certain groups put in to make the commemoration of
the end of the First World War a truly memorable occasion.
Arnold Local History Group, after hours and hours of hard work, research, talks and writings, brought about a display of photographs, film and written material, depicting how “Arnold’s Mighty Army”, men and women alike, rose magnificently to the evils and challenge of war. Inspiring in every way, it attracted more than 1,500 people and the library said that for the whole of the exhibition, there were many more people in the library than normal.
The exhibition has, sadly, come to an end and our grateful thanks go to those volunteers of the ALHG for giving us an insight into what our forebears endured in that time of terrible trouble and upheaval.
