Successful networking at FWW in Kent & Medway update session

The Museum Development Programme for Kent & Medway held a successful First World War update session at the Royal Engineers Museum, Library & Archive on Monday 4th November.

The session was attended by over 50 people from various museums, heritage, and arts groups and organisations. Speakers included the Shorncliffe Trust, the Western Front Association, the Kent Lieutenancy, the South East Grid for Learning Associates, the War Memorials Trust, Viola Films, the National Children's Football Alliance, Kent County Council, Screen South, HLF and the Imperial War Museum.

It was a great opportunity to hear about the various plans and projects that are taking place in the county, and further afield - there is plenty going on and many ways for groups and organisations to get involved.
