WW1 Armistice Centenary Flower Festival

November 3, 2018 @ 10:00 am - November 10, 2018 @ 5:00 pm

St Mary’s Church will be holding a week long Flower Festival with its own Cenotaph, War memorial and Avenue of Remembrance for village soldiers who lost their lives.  The church will be open every day and refreshments will be available.  Entrance is free but donations will be kindly accepted.  10% of proceeds will go to Help for Heroes.

St Mary’s is grateful to the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust for awarding us a grant to purchase one of the two Tommy silhouettes on display.  Their aim is to bring communities together not just to remember, but also to think about the Armed Forces today

As part of the Festival there will be a fundraising evening concert on Friday 9th November entitled An Evening to Remember with music, poetry and drama from the period.  It will be a mix of solemnity and joy.  There will also be a street party in church after the Remembrance service on the Sunday, 11th November.
