CWGC wins people's choice award for first Gardening Scotland garden
CWGC along with veterans’ charity Glen Art, and the Wilfred Owen Association has been awarded the people's choice award and a silver medal for this year’s Gardening Scotland (June 2 to 4). The garden was created to commemorate the CWGC’s centenary and Wilfred Owen’s stay at Craiglockhart in Edinburgh in 1917.
Today (18 April) is the International Day for Monuments and Sites, which aims to raise public awareness about the diversity and vulnerability of the world’s built monuments and heritage sites and the efforts required to protect and conserve them. We have asked the Commission’s conservation team to tell us about four of CWGC’s impressive, but lesser-known sites from around the world. Which one would you like to visit? Vote in our Twitter Poll.
The first wave of 2018 CWGC Centenary Interns have arrived in France and Belgium, working with the Commission at some of the most important sites commemorating those who died in the two world wars.
