partnership 16 bThe Welsh Government would like to thank those who attended and contributed to the First World War Centenary Partnership Day held with Imperial War Museums on 28 January at Aberystwyth University. The event included the launch of the Cymru’n Cofio Wales Remembers 1914-1918 Programme 2016 brochure.

Feedback on the event has been extremely positive.  A summary can be found here . We will be looking at the possibility of holding a similar event next year.

The Cymru’n Cofio Wales Remembers 1914-1918 website is managed by People’s Collection Wales and provides information on events, projects, news and signposting services for activities of Welsh interest. Over the coming months and years, the site will continue to reflect how the people of Wales will commemorate this important centenary in Wales and beyond, through information provided by individuals, communities and organisations. Twitter and Facebook accounts are also in place.
