The project, which is called 'The One Hundred Year Heritage of the First World War for Wimborne and East Dorset' will run throughout the period marking the centenary of the war, and will enable local people to research the effect of the war across Wimborne and East Dorset and engage them in learning about this part of their heritage. The project will begin with two 'We Want Your Stories' days, being held on Saturday 23 and Monday 25 August, between 10.30 and 3. Entry to the museum will be free for people attending the event.
