With thanks...

This exhibition could not have been staged without the support and help of many people from Frittenden and beyond. 

We are thankful to the following individuals for their specific support:

  • Tor Millard, Phil Betts and the Frittenden Historical Society committee
  • Tony Baker for the conservation work on the St Mary’s Roll of Honour
  • Sue Betts for her amazing idea which filled our “blank wall”
  • Karen Brock for help with research of some of the more difficult to find people and with setting up the exhibition
  • Chris Brown for taking our vague concept for a centrepiece and turning it into a masterpiece
  • Nick Bull for producing the fantastic artwork which we used on our marketing materials
  • Heather Cullingworth for the fabulous backdrop to Chris Brown’s garden of remembrance
  • Lance French for another great website (and for suggesting Nick for the artwork)
  • Aidan McGinley for helping deliver the invitations around the village
  • Rosalind Riley for her fantastic voiceover for our introductory video
  • Sue Sharp for making the flag up into a display and for helping with the invitation deliveries
  • Andy Sloman for enlisting as Tommy for the weekend and building  a tank
  • Liza Townsend for the realistic shell

There have been amazing groups who have also helped us:

  • Frittenden WI for providing delicious refreshments over the weekend of the exhibition
  • Frittenden School have enthusiastically supported the project and the work the children produced for the exhibition was brilliant
  • Cranbrook Museum for the loan of some of their artefacts
  • St Mary’s Church and Frittenden Parish Council for their support
  • To all our volunteer stewards for giving us your time and enthusiasm for the exhibition
  • Dulwich Prep Cranbrook for the loan of display cases and display boards (and for transporting them)

There were also those who:

  • Made trench cake for the exhibition
  • Loaned us family items and told the stories behind them
  • Put notices in their windows
  • Handed out flyers to their friends and colleagues

We were also the grateful recipients of a Heritage Lottery Fund grant, which gave us the means to put our visions into reality.
