First World War Centenary


2014 marks the centenary of the start of the First World War and we are going to commemorate the anniversary with a year-long project looking at Hayle during the war and its after-effects on the town.

This project links to a wide range of organisations: Hayle Town Council, Hayle Archive, Hayle Secondary School, Hayle Oral History Project, Hayle primary schools, Hayle Day Care Centre, Hayle Film Club and Hayle British Legion. We will also be linking with the Imperial War Museum centenary celebrations, as one of their centenary partnership member organisations, and the War Memorials Trust.

The project will have a range of mechanisms for learning and research, culminating in an exhibition to be held at John Harvey House - the opening of which will be linked into the memorial services in the town.

For more information on this project and other heritage activities please see the heritage centre's website at
