It’s moved! The WW1 exhibition can now be seen at Bretton Library.  The temporary exhibition consist of four pop-up banners which cover a range of topics including the causes of the War,  life in the trenches, with examples of local soldier’s experiences.  Did you know that the Mayor of Peterborough was called upon to read the ‘Riot Act’ as attitudes towards German families in the city changed.  Discover more about Edith Cavell and how Baker Perkins and other Peterborough Companies  were involved in war work.    You can find out more about the temperance movement and their involvement in the tea room at Peterborough’s East Railway Station and read excerpts from the visitor’s books which were signed by servicemen using the tea room between 1916 to 1917. Please call the library (01733 864291) or check the website bit.ly/2cQ3h0E  for opening times.
