Hyson Green & The Great War

This year saw the start of a Hyson Green World War 1 project based at the Vine Community Centre next door to St Stephen’s Church on Bobbers Mill Road. Chris Weir is working with the Vine in partnership with young people from IntoUniversity  and Home Education families. Church and community volunteers are also involved. IntoUniversity meets at the Vine to undertake extra curriculum work for local children.   The aim of the project is to preserve the Roll of Honour which has over 400 names, research some of the soldiers and their families and do a display on Hyson Green in the Early 1900s for the Spring . The project was awarded a Heritage Lottery Fund grant.
