THE search is on for pieces of his­tory for a project com­mem­o­rat­ing Hal­ton’s gal­lantry medal win­ners from the First World War.

Hal­ton’s Gal­lant He­roes needs pho­tographs, mem­o­ra­bilia, news­pa­per clip­pings, let­ters and sto­ries of those who fought and their lives af­ter their re­turn.

The project is be­ing run by Nor­ton Pri­ory Mu­seum Trust and Hal­ton Her­itage Part­ner­ship and funded by the Her­itage Lot­tery Fund.

Its aim is to build aware­ness of the brav­ery, hero­ism and life sto­ries of those who sur­vived the war and what life was like af­ter.

Sto­ries of those who went away from Widnes, Run­corn, Moore and Dares­bury are be­ing sought.

Any­one who wants to sub­mit any­thing or has sto­ries to tell should email ed­u­ca­tion@nor­ton­pri­ or call 01928 569 895.
