World War 1 : Family Memories
Much research has been done about the brave men of Boxted who fought and died during the Great War.
However, little has been written about the men who returned from the trenches or of the women who kept the home fires burning in the absence of their menfolk.
Most families had a close or distant relative who experienced the War. If you, or someone you know, are a descendants of such a person and have memories or stories that have been handed down to you, we would love to hear from you. We can then record the names and details in the Village achieves for posterity.
An Armistice Centenary Concert is being planned in Peter’s Church on 3rdNovember. If there is sufficient response to this request, we would like to display a Memories Board for everyone to read at the event.

The University of East Anglia are heading up a project, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, called ‘Orchards East’. The project aims both to research and record old orchards, and to establish new community orchards, across the counties of Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Essex.
The initial survey work – which aims to establish the location and condition of surviving orchards – is being carried out by volunteers. We do not yet have any volunteers for your parish, and wondered whether you know of anybody who might be prepared to help? The work is straightforward and, we hope, enjoyable: volunteers are sent maps, a survey pack and full instructions, while a training day for volunteers in Cambridgeshire is planned for later in the summer.
We also wondered whether you might know if anyone had considered establishing a new community orchard, on any spare land in your parish. We are able to provide advice, assistance – and fruit trees.
