European Heritage Open Days

25 September 2012

For the first time since it was founded, the Commonwealth War Graves Commission France Area took part in the European Heritage Open Days.

The event was in Arras, at the Memorial of Faubourg d'Amiens on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 September.

All through the weekend several teams took it in turns to demonstrate our know-how in terms of building, rehabilitation or maintenance of grave markers, as well as horticulture, on site.

Commission staff were also on hand to open our registers to visitors and offer them our information leaflets.
