November 2018 – World War I Centenary Commemoration
The commemoration held on November 11th was a great success, and was covered extensively on TV and in the press. Council would like to thank all of those groups and individuals who helped ensure that the day provided a fitting culmination to an extraordinary year. We will shortly be announcing the sums raised for the two charities, the Poppy Appeal and Scotty’s Little Soldiers.
There was an official launch on Thursday 22nd February in St Mary’s Church. A website has been created to provide information about the ongoing project – please visit it here, where you can make donations.
Visits have taken place to Canada and to Europe, where, as at St Mary’s, sprigs of lavender and rosemary in a Torc (representing the Village) were laid, along with letters from elected officials and schoolchildren. These moving ceremonies have made an impact on all involved, including the one at the Sailing Club on 22nd September, to remember Harold Meek, the only one of the 45 who died at sea. Most recently the same procedure was adopted on our behalf by British Forces in Gaza, and the final visit was made on November 6th to Berlin.
