Wiveliscombe Children of the Great War

From September 2014 to September 2016, the children of Wiveliscombe in Somerset worked with local artists and writers on the Children of the Great War project, funded by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. It was a won­derful community project to commemorate the centenary of the First World War and compare the lives of children 100 years ago with the lives the children of the town live now. A permanent memorial mosaic created by the children has been unveiled in Jubilee Gardens and this book includes a description of the tiles on the mosaic, alongside artwork and poetry illustrating what the Great War means to those who took part.
