Monday 21st May – Powys War memorials Project with Nathan Davies
Powys County Council secured funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund, Cadw and the Brecon Beacons National Park Authority for the Powys War Memorials Project. This is a four year project (2015-2019) to commemorate the centenary of World War 1.
Nathan has been managing the project since it started in October 2015. He is going to tell us about some of the project’s successes, achievements and indeed challenges over the last couple of years. He will also fill us in about possible ways that we might like to be benefit from or contribute to the project.
