Competitions

Update: 30th June 2017 

The Powys War Memorials Project 2017 quiz closed on Friday 9th June 2017. 

Thank you to everyone who entered. 

Congratulations to Jo Hammonds who won the first prize of a "My pamper day" at the Lake County House Hotel and Spa in Llangammarch Wells, Powys. Jo's winning tie-breaker was:

"It is important to preserve war memorials because...."

Each unique commemorative monument gives insight to sacrifices made by generations never to be forgotten.

Here is a selection of some of the other tie-breakers: 

A local physical presence connects yesterday’s sacrifice and a reminder to strive towards peace.

They are an important part of history, ensuring future generations never forget the sacrifices made. 

They are a physical reminder of people, now long gone, who died for their country.

They allow us to remember fallen heroes.

They form part of our cultural heritage through commemoration of those affected by global conflict.

It is vital to remember the past so we don’t repeat the same mistakes.

We need to commemorate the lives that were tragically lost in historic wars or conflicts.

It reminds us to consider how we have the life we lead today. 

Memorials both honour each individual sacrifice and represent a community’s chosen method of remembrance.

They commemorate those who lost lives and remind us of the devastating impact of war.

Not only do they provide history they give us a place to reflect on life.

They commemorate our past, criticise our present and council us for our future.


It is the least we can do in order to remember and honour those heroes. 

 

Thank you to everyone who entered.
