World War 1 Connections with Barshaw Park, Paisley

The First World War affected millions across the globe and changed our world.
Barshaw park has many WW1 connections and Friends of Barshaw Park will be applying for a grant from the Heritage Lottery WW1 Fund for a project to tell visitors to Barshaw Park about this history and to commemorate the people who contributed to the war effort and to those whose lives were affected.

Please help us develop this project. It’s important that people from the local community are involved. You can help in many ways by:

Soldiers ww1

Nursing Staff and patients at Barshaw House during WW1 where soldiers were recuperating from their injuries

Helping research the history of the park. We would love to have more photographs of the park showing WW1 connections
Telling us your ideas for commemorative events or structures in the park

Volunteering to help in any way, such as working on the walled garden or other projects project, designing our publicity material and plan, delivering leaflets, and in others ways which present themselves!
Joining Friends of Barshaw Park as a committee member or as volunteer to work on projects in the park
