Armed Forces Covenant Trust
We are delighed to tell you that our Parish Council has been awarded ten silhouettes funded by the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Turst. This award is designed to bring out community together to remember; and to think about the Armed Forces today.
Our silhouettes are a powerful and visual reminder of the sacrifice made by the 800,000 soldiers who died during the Great War. From the start of November, you will be able to see the silhouettes on benches at the silhouettes on benches at the All Saints Church, Renhold Chapel, Primary School, The Polhill Arms, the War Memorial, Oakwood Post Office and the Village Hall. If you have any suggestions as to where the other three should be placed, we would love to hear from you.
We have ordered seventeen standard Remembrance roses from The World of Roses in Upper Caldecote and we are hoping to be able to plant them and an oak sapling in our war memorial garden before November 11th.
Our grateful thanks go in advance to Martin Roberts for his advice and support for this venture.
Please join with us at The War Memorial at 10:15 on Sunday November 11th as several representatives from our village community will be laying wreaths. As we proceed to the church, the bells will ring out as they did at the end of World War One. Please support us by making a poppy display in your window or front garden as they, too, would be a poignant reminder of the sacrifice that our village heroes made 100 years ago.
Please do pop into the church over that weekend as our community groups are decorating every one of the church windows with flowers on the theme of remembrance. Thank you.
