During the summer a range of events and activities have taken place across the county as part of a project coordinated by the council called The Home Front: Cambridgeshire commemorates the end of World War II.

 

The touring exhibition will run from September to February 2016 and will feature residents' memories, stories and photos of the war time era, as well as views from those who attended some of the events. It also features some wonderful memories and images gathered by the Museum of Cambridge and Age UK Cambridgeshire.

From today until Monday (28 September) it can be seen in Burwell Museum. It will then be found in Cambridgeshire Libraries in Ely, St Ives, Huntingdon, St Neots, Wisbech, March, Whittlesey, and Cambridge Central, as well as St Neots Museum, Wisbech & Fenland Museum and Whittlesey Museum.

Joanne Gray from Cambridgeshire County Council's Supporting Businesses and Communities Service said "We've been extremely proud of the number of communities and organisations that came forward to take part in our project. The exhibition is a chance to see how Cambridgeshire residents remembered the war time era and a record of the events that took place this summer to commemorate the 70th anniversary."
