As 2018 draws to a close…

Christmas certificate2

2018 has been a busy year, with numerous events marking the 100 year anniversary of the end of the First World War.

Many people were not able to be with their families during the Christmases of the First World War. Parcels and cards were therefore posted overseas to servicemen and women. Schools and communities joined in and did their bit too.

This Christmas certificate was sent to local school boy, Noah Elwell, to thank him for the gifts his school had sent to soldiers fighting in the Great War.

100 years on from that time,  we would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas from all the team at Nuneaton Museum and Art Gallery.
