We aim to put on a series of events and activities to show the different ways in which the Great War affected the lives of the borough’s residents, whether on the home front or on active service. The project will also explore Doncaster’s strong ties with the Kings Own Yorkshire Light Infantry.
We would also like to create a single and unique resource that both commemorates World War One as experienced by Doncastrians and makes the borough’s heritage available to all. We hope that this will encourage people to record and share their local and family history.
We need to collect evidence of local support for this project. We would therefore really appreciate it if you could complete the attached e-form which takes no more than a few minutes.
Thank you for your support.
According to a survey conducted by online retailer Amazon, Doncaster has a large appetite for purchasing romantic fiction. Doncaster has risen over Huntingdon which maintained top spot for the last 3 years. For those people who like to borrow fiction from the library Crime novels are also very popular, with Lee Child's 'A Wanted Man' the most popular title.
