Wartime memorabilia, photos and stories are being sought for a special exhibition this September.

Organisers are hoping people from across the Wolds area will come forward to help them create a picture of how war has affected Wolds’ communities in the past.

Community heritage project Down Your Wold has teamed up with Louth Town Council and Lincolnshire Remembrance: Memories and Memorials for The Wolds in Wartime exhibition, which will be shown on Saturday September 13, at the Sessions House in Louth.

“We hope people will loan items such as photos, newspapers, diaries, letters and uniforms, the list is endless,” said Sam Phillips, Down Your Wold project officer.

“We would love to hear from anyone who has anything to help us create a display to capture how the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and surrounding market towns have been affected by previous conflict

“We also want to hear from people who may have a Wolds wartime story to tell as they could be featured in a special audio presentation which will be played during the day.

“And we also welcome anyone who is interested in helping to put the exhibition together to get in touch too.”
