Share your WWI mementoes

October 04 2018

FISHPONDS and Hillfields libraries are asking residents to share family memories as they plan to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.

The two libraries are planning displays showing the local experience of the war to mark the centenary on November 11, and are asking for copies of photos, letters or other family records and mementoes from the time.

Library supervisor Rani Zar said: “These could be copies of letters, diaries, photos, pay books and the like that have been handed down from generation to generation. In addition, if you have any family stories that you would like to share about the First World War, we’d be keen to display them."

Anyone who can contribute should drop in to their local library or email either fishponds.library@bristol.gov.uk or hillfields.library@bristol.gov.uk.
