The Melling and Aintree WW1 Exhibition

The Melling and Aintree WW1 Exhibition was opened today with a moving remembrance service performed by Aintree Family Church Revd Geoff Bentley.

The exhibition organised by Revd Bentley and Peter Gill is in its 3rd year and going from strength to strength. This year sees unique exhibits by Pegasus WW2 Displays.

The fallen individuals listed on the Melling and Aintree WW1 memorials are remember in displays featuring information about the men who gave their lives so bravely as researched by local historians Bill Borland and Pete Gill. The event is part of the WW1 Aintree and Melling Project supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Displays also include fascinating original artefacts and information about WW1 and is truly worth a visit. The exhibition is open to the general public at Aintree Davenhill Primary School, Aintree Lane from Tuesday 8 - Saturday 12 November from 10am-6.30pm.
