Story

Although Sterts Theatre has received a confirmed National Lottery grant of £7,000 for a World War 1 1918-2018 heritage project and additional fundraising we remain £2000 short of the full budget required to complete this project. We plan to restore the Linkinhorne parish Roll of Honour for WW1 which is fading and in need of professional restoration. This would be a lasting record for the parish and would be a fitting act to commemorate the centenary of the end of the Great War. Your help in achieving this goal would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks to money raised by National Lottery players, the project will mean that the members of the Sterts Theatre Company, the volunteer community of Sterts, and the members of the Linkinhorne Community History and Archive Group will work together to research, design and create an exhibition of artefacts and information around the effect of the WW1 on the parish of Linkinhorne and its surrounding area, its people and its activities. They will work with museums and records offices in the county and with that information they will create a piece of performance art which will be performed as part of a season of music and theatre at Sterts entitled Remembrance. The Youth Theatre Group will take their production to local schools, groups and community events and their work will be an ongoing legacy for use in schools and events in the area.

    We have our first donation but more are needed to help Sterts to fully fund its planned events to mark the centenary of the end of WW1. Sterts is situated in the parish of Linkinhorne and the centenary events are to be a legacy not only for the parish but for South East Cornwall. Please donate what you can as your contribution to commemorate the lives and sacrifices of men and women of our area in the Great War and their gifts to us their descendants.

    On 12 September 1918 the battles to take the Hindenburg Line began. A series of very large scale offensive operations that will advance to and break the Hindenburg Line system. Carried out by the First, Third and Fourth Armies, which includes the 1st and 10th Battalions Duke of Cornwall Light Infantry serving in the 5th Division. These victories rank among the greatest-ever British military achievements. Ludendorff called it a "black day" for German army. Help us to remember our local people and their sacrifices.

    It is now September and a hundred years ago today the British 3rd Army is attacking along a 10-mile front south of Arras, while the adjacent 4th Army resumes it attack in the Somme, as the Germans continue to fall back. Please help us commemorate the actions and sacrifices of our local families at Sterts this autumn.
