Through interviews and archive material, it charts the development of Enham from a rehabilitation centre for disabled World War I servicemen to the wide-ranging disability charity of today. It includes fascinating footage of Enham village during the 1930s, as well as scenes from the Battle of El Alamein. The film has been produced by Media4Schools, an education-based media training initiative, and supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The EACH Project team is inviting the public to a screening of the film which will be shown at the following times and venues:

Wednesday 9 June, 3.30pm, Smannell & Enham Primary School

Thursday 10 June, 12pm, Shoosmith Centre, Enham
