War Memorials

Memorial outside Welton church

Lincolnshire Remembrance: Memories and Memorials is an exciting local community heritage project, which is a chance for local volunteers, including members of the armed forces community, to learn more about how conflict affected their communities, and how it is commemorated. We are very grateful to the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Armed Forces Community Covenant grant programme and the County Council for funding the project.

Volunteers are being invited to take part in recording and researching war memorials and the names nscribed on them, and the impact of conflict on Lincolnshire’s families, communities, landscape and industry, with full training and support provided. The results of the research will be made available here, on the Lincs to the Past website.

We know that many people have already researched their local memorials and have come up with a wealth of information about their communities during periods of conflict. If you have information like that, and would like to share it more widely, please get in touch.

The Project Team is keen to work with groups of volunteers who would like to share what they have found with others through a series of events, to commemorate and remember the sacrifices of the First World War and other conflicts that have, and still are, affecting Lincolnshire today.

As well as training on recording and researching war memorials, the project is offering specialist training in areas such as conservation of memorials, oral histories, using the Lincolnshire Archives and Local Studies Library, digital photography and others.

Volunteers also have opportunities to get involved with creating physical and on-line displays, and creating learning resources for children and young people. Take a look at some of the exhibitions and resources we have already created.

Volunteers can register their interest in taking part in the project any time. If you would like to volunteer, or find out more, please contact the Project Team at warmemorials@lincolnshire.gov.uk.

OPEM exhibition at The Collection

OPEM 4 is the fourth biennial open exhibition hosted by The Collection and Usher Gallery, and will showcase the work of local and regional artists who were chosen by a pair of industry experts (writer/curator Elinor Morgan and artist Brian Griffiths) based on the quality and originality of their work. Hundreds of artists from around Lincolnshire, Yorkshire, Cambridgeshire and more entered into the competition, hoping to have their work featured centre-stage at a professional art exhibition.

The winning artists are:

• Reece Straw

• Jake Kent

• Stephanie Douet

• Jake Moore

• Selina Mosinski

• Matthew Chesney

• Ellen Brady

• Colette Griffin

This will be the first time some of these artists have exhibited with a professional institution. By winning the competition these artists will each receive money and supplies to fund the creation of an all-new original piece of work for this particular show. Other prizes include a £3000 purchasing/commissioning prize which has been sponsored by the Heslam Trust, while another artist will receive their own solo exhibition in The Usher Gallery.
