A free pop-up exhibition, uncovering the stories of some of the 80,000+ members of the Durham Light Infantry who served in WW1 opens on July 29th at the Chester-le-Street Library.
Community Service Volunteers (CSV) has created the exhibition in partnership with Chester-le-Street Heritage Group which brings together photographs, letters, keepsakes, uniforms and medals - reflecting the North East’s heritage and the human cost of war.
A commemoration garden built in memory of the 100 year anniversary of the First World War will open at Oakdale Library, Poole, on Saturday 26th July.
Thanks to a project by CSV’s Retired and Senior Volunteers, visitors will be able to enjoy a transformed garden home to poppies, planters and a plaque dedicated to the memory of the fallen.
More than 50 years after Community Service Volunteers (CSV) recruited and placed its very first volunteer, the charity is entering an exciting new era.
Having inspired and engaged over 230,000 people during 2013/14 the charity, which operates across the UK, is preparing to make an even greater impact.
Following a period of restructure and transformation, CSV now has a strong base to take forward its core social action and volunteering programmes. The charity has an inspiring plan for its future and a new senior team.
