Memories and memorabilia documenting how Lincolnshire Wolds residents coped during times of conflict will be on show at the Sessions House, Eastgate in Louth from September 11-13 as part of Heritage Open Days, a countywide initiative.

The exhibition is a partnership between Louth Town Council, Down Your Wold and Lincolnshire Memories and Memorials projects and will be open to the public from 10am-2pm on Thursday and Friday, and 10am–4pm on Saturday.

Volunteers have been working on an exhibition which includes local items relating to the First and Second Wold Wars.

Also included are videos which have captured memories from war veterans speaking about their first hand experiences.

The special story of local man Patrick Hagan - the founder of Mr Chips on Aswell Street - will be shown to the public in Louth Library on September 13 at 4.30pm as part of the Wolds in Wartime Exhibition, which is open to all.
