The redevelopment of the Craven’s Part In The Great War website is now well underway. As part of our upcoming launch the project will deliver an outreach programme of complementary workshops and events throughout Craven in 2015 to engage with different audiences and to promote the website.
The project will conclude with the official launch of the revised website in April 2015 – a special event that will bring together all the groups and volunteers who have been involved in the project.
Professor Peter Doyle, military historian, will be the keynote speaker. Peter is a member of the British Commission of Military History, and secretary of the Parliamentary All Party War Graves and Battlefield Heritage Group, he is also the author of many works of military history and a battlefields specialist.
The website will be re-engineered by the team at Dales.Net who bring a wealth of experience to the project having worked in the internet industry since the very beginning way back in the 1990′s. They were also responsible for designing the original site in 2006. Based in Rylstone the company has a strong affinity with the Craven area and the Yorkshire Dales.
