Display to remember the heroes of the First World War
People heading to Jarrow’s Viking Centre are being given the chance to find out what life was like for those living during the 1914-18 conflict.
The display has been put together by Jarrow and Hebburn Local History Society and features images and stories of the people of that time.
The exhibition, which was officially opened by the Mayor of South Tyneside Coun Ken Stephenson on Monday, marks the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.
It is based in the former Grainger Games store and will remain open to visitors until Saturday.
Secretary of the history society Win Currie said; “We have received really good positive feedback from people who have come in to have a look at our display.
“They can’t believe the work that has gone into it. One of our members has been working on this for the past six-months while it has all been pulled together in the last month.
“We’re over the moon with the response we’re receiving from people, we would love for as many people as possible to come along and see the exhibition before it closed on Saturday.”
The display is open each day until Saturday from 10am until 4pm.
