The Vine Centre and St Stephen’s Church launch their exciting new community project to preserve the WW1 roll of honour in St Stephen’s Church, research the names and families on the roll and create a display on Hyson Green

The memories of World War One soldiers, families and communities from Nottingham are to be brought back to life thanks to a new education project

 Hyson Green and the Great War will look at the stories behind the men who lived in the area and whose names are recorded on a Roll of Honour at Stephen’s Church in Bobbers Mill Road.

The Roll of Honour itself, which records the names of more than 400 local men who were on active service, will also undergo a restoration to ensure its preservation.

Almost £10,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund has been donated towards the project, which is being organised by The Vine Community Centre, based at St Stephen’s Church.
