AN exhibition telling the story of how communities across Wiltshire fared during the First World War takes place at Bradford on Avon Library in August.

The Bradford on Avon Museum will host a WW1 exhibition from the Wiltshire at War: Community stories series. It has been produced by the Wiltshire and Swindon History Centre.

The exhibitions tell the stories of how the First World War shaped lives and landscapes across Wiltshire's towns and villages between 1914 and 1918.

Valerie Holden, a trustee of the Museum, said: “The exhibitions are about local named people and we learn about their experiences of the First World War.”

Artefacts and documents will be on display and there will be clothes from the period for visitors to try on.

The exhibition takes place in the Bradford on Avon Library meeting room on the first floor. A lift is available for elderly people and those with disabilities.

It will run from Saturday 5 August 2017 until Saturday 26 August 2017 when the library is open on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. In addition it will be open on Sunday from 2pm to 4pm, when the museum is open.
