Forget Never Project

In 2014, MP for South Basildon and East Thurrock, Stephen Metcalfe set up the Forget Never, Vergessen Niemals, Oublier Jamais project to commemorate the start of the First World War. Basildon Borough Twinning Association and its twin towns took part along with Basildon Borough Heritage Group.

In 2016, the Forget Never – The Somme project was set up to commemorate the centenary of the Battle of the Somme. The blog for the project can be found here Forget Never – The Somme with the events for the year.
