Bromley’s Mayor, Councillor Kim Botting, presented certificates to Bromley children and young people this week for their contribution to the ‘Bromley Remembers’ exhibition

The ‘Bromley Remembers’ exhibition is in  the Central Library until Friday 16 November

The children submitted their thoughts on war and peace through drawing, painting and poetry. The young people’s work is displayed as part of the exhibition which chronicles many of the stories of the men who lost their lives during WW1.

A website has been set up to commemorate the 872 men of Bromley whose names appear on the WW1 memorial. More than 800 names have been identified so far and the project is still ongoing.

Bromley’s Mayor commented how poignant she thought the exhibition was and how well the young people had depicted their thoughts. She said: "It is so important for us to remember the ultimate sacrifice that many Bromley residents made for us. Thank you so much to those who have spent years researching the information to make this exhibition and the website possible, and my congratulations to all the young people who entered this competition with such remarkable artwork."

The Bromley War Memorial website is at: www.bromleywarmemorial.org.uk
