10th Anniversary Event
13th-15th October 2023
Neatishead, Irstead & Barton Turf Community Heritage Group (NIBCHG) was formed in October 2013, bringing together individual village groups – Barton Turf History Project, Irstead Memories and Neatishead Nostalgia – to undertake a project to commemorate the WW1 centenary. Research from this project ‘Living through World War One in three Norfolk Broadland Villages’ can be found on the NIBCHG Great War website. Further events to commemorate WW1 took place over the following four years. Since then the group has undertaken research projects, organised monthly presentations, parish walks, village events and formed NIBCHG Friends. We thought it fitting, therefore, to celebrate our 10th Anniversary with a special weekend event across the three villages.
Exhibitions – 3 villages, 4 churches, 3 days
Exhibitions included WW1 & Poppy Display ; WW2 Memories; Village links with St Benet’s Abbey; People, places and past events in the NIB villages; Schools and children; Family histories ; Hands-On with our WW1 and WW2 Community Chests; House histories, ‘At home’ displays.
