Can you help us?
Do you have Family links to Great Harwood?
On the 2nd of October 1926 the War Memorial in Great Harwood was unveiled. This was the start of the development of the area into the Memorial Park that we know and love today. Do you remember attending this event?
The Friends of Memorial Park are working with Hyndburn Borough Councils Parks Team on the development of a funding bid to Heritage Lottery Fund for improvements to the park.
As part of the project we are looking to record residents recollections of visiting the park as both an oral history and photographic history.
Was your mother or grandmother one of the ladies on the War Memorial Committee.
Here is the list of the Committee
