Bradstow School awarded Heritage Lottery Fund Award for Innocents Still celebration of Broadstairs & St Peters lives lost in WW1

Bradstow School have been awarded a grant of £9,600 from Heritage Lottery Fund, First World War then and now programme, for their Innocents Still interactive celebration of the lives of the Broadstairs and St Peters men and boys lost during the conflict. This will coincide with the Poppy Proms in the Park community event commencing at the Memorial Ground on Saturday 10th November 2018.

Bradstow school will be working together with the local community to learn about these soldiers to prepare volunteers to bring them to back to life over the Remembrance weekend, where they will be seen in and around Broadstairs in their uniforms. The concept was inspired by the work “We’re Her Because We’re Here” by Jeremy Deller, which commemorated the centenary of the Battle of the Somme.

Members of the public will see the Innocents as they move around and learn about who they were, and booklets and a film will be produced as a permanent learning resource.

On Sunday 11th November the Remembrance Day service will be held by the war memorial in town with all groups attending invited to follow the Innocents to the Memorial Ground for a reprise of the Poppy Proms and visit the Living History exhibit, open until 3pm.

Bradstow School are also seeking volunteers and sponsors from the community
