PEOPLE have until the end of the month to help shape Worcestershire's own commemorations to mark the centenary of the First World War.
Hundreds of visitors packed out the Guildhall for a special consultation day on February 9 featuring re-enactors, displays and talks all themed around one of the bloodiest conflicts in human history.
People were given the chance to share their ideas for events to mark next year's centenary with a committee which has been set up to plan a whole host of activities from 2014 to 2018.
But those who were not able to attend the event can still share their suggestions by filling out a questionnaire which will be available in the Guildhall until the end of this month.
"Parades, school workshops, remembrance services, trails, exhibitions and talks have all been suggested," said Discover History's Paul Harding, who is a member of the committee.
"I am really proud of the good people of Worcester. Young and old have all had their say. No survivors are living from the War to end all wars. Many families will have stories, medals, artefacts and memories of ancestors who were touched by the war in some way. Worcester will mark this centenary and ensure we always remember."
