This weekend made us all realise and appreciate the hard work, planning and thought which has been long in the making of a year only to bring the commemoration of 100years to such a sincere and poignant time. All over our land whether young or old we came together to REMEMBER our forefathers, those who in every family gave lives so that we could be here today!
In St. Michaels and All Angles we have created an exhibition of many displays relating to events and circumstances of the climax of the war in 1918 both at home and in the battlefields. The exhibition has been extended until 23rd November to visit or revisit. We have enjoyed a poetry workshop which inspired some wonderful poetry and will follow on the 15 November with a poetry evening at 6:30pm for an hour of music and poetry.
The WW1 concerts on 9th and 10th November were most stirring, they touched the hears of all those involved as well as the audiences. We were delighted to have welcomed the pupils of Tenbury Ormiston High School to bring their moving production of War Horse along as well as a most professional team of technical lads providing light and sound which created the atmosphere it deserved.
Along with the nation, we held a very special armistice service standing in the bright sunlight, remembering so many, and followed with a PEACE lunch in the village hall.
There needs to be more written about this Remembrance 2018 but for now we hold on to the poppies and the doves to take us into the 21st century, to a future of HOPE and PEACE whether we are in our very small rural corner, town or city, on this island or anywhere in the world!
A very big thank you to all who put so much effort and time into a very splendid memory.
We will REMEMBER the, R.E.Pleasted
