WW1 Sewing @ Grove Lodge

We are working with the University of Derby History Dept and some local researchers on a project called Derby Green Spaces during World War One. We are looking for information about how the parks and green spaces were used during the war and the activities that took place.
The project involves creating a textile banner with local groups.
Here are some images from our sessions with the Upbeat Communities Group and our local researchers.
