The Great War Project (GWP) has been set up to promote what's happening to mark the centenary of WW1 in the Malmesbury and the Villages area over the next few years. We want to bring people together through events and projects looking at the experiences of communities before, during, and after the First World War. We're not just looking at their loss and sacrifice but also the world they lived in and the lives they led.
We want to improve knowledge of these times but also build something positive for the future. This will include new community initiatives; helping people find out more about the lives and experiences of their ancestors, wherever they may have lived; and recording what remains of the memories of these times before they are lost.

The GWP was set up by the community development charity MVCAP in 2013 to promote projects and events running from 2014 to 2018 and help people get things up and running. If you want to run an event or would like to get involved in something get in touch through our Facebook page.
