Talks

If you are the talks organiser for a local group and would like a talk on this project or a related topic (see list below) then we can supply a speaker complete with a lavishly illustrated talk. We do charge £30 for this service (the only way we recoup any of the significant costs of the project). We will also ask for travelling expenses (from Newbury) if the venue is outside of West Berkshire.

 

Topics:

 

The West Berkshire War Memorials Project

How the project came into being, how it has reached it's current position and what is planned for the future - and how you can help. Plus a look at some of West Berkshires many and varied memorials to the fallen.
