To mark the centenary of the end of the Great War Margaret Roberts (Sport and Leisure History Research Team) and Sarah Webb (Cheshire Campus Library) give a public lecture on the impact of the War on the College and its community.

Using material from the college archive their lecture will illustrate how students and staff responded to the call to arms.  Fourteen students from the Cheshire County Training College, Crewe paid the ultimate sacrifice during the Great War with others, both male and female, serving King and Country in many different ways.

The story of the College during the Great War tells of painful choices, of those who never returned, those who served in extraordinary ways, those who could only watch, mourn and remember and those whose lives changed forever.

Come along and listen to the poignant untold stories of past students and staff, view the WWI dedication plaque to those who lost their lives, with its display of poppies as well as many photographs and memorabilia from the time.

Refreshments will be available from 7pm.
