On August 8th & 9th the Porch Project were fortunate enough to be able to take seven young people to France on a two-day WW1 Battlefield Tour. This was made available to us by Mark Brennan and the Hadleigh Great War Centenary Project, www.hadleighww1.com . What a wonderful opportunity for local young people to witness first-hand the great sacrifice and bravery of their local forefathers.
