Remembrance Weekend

10th11th November

Over the weekend of 10th/11th November we shall be commemorating the end of the 1914/18 war.

At 2.30pm on Saturday, November 10th, there will be a Remembrance Concert in the church.  At the end of the first world war, England was an impoverished  country in mourning – there was hardly a family which had not been touched in some way by death or suffering. Yet out of such national sadness, a wonderful spirit of thankfulness and hope was born.  It is this spirit which we would like to encapsulate and acknowledge in prose, poetry and music. The concert will be followed by a tea in the church hall. Free tickets for the concert are available from Jean (01732 842074  go2jean@aol.com) or Anita (01732 842232 anitaparkins@hotmail.co.uk)

During the weekend,  the Ryarsh version of the “Windswept Lands and Seas of Blood” exhibition – the wall of poppies knitted by so many local ladies - will be flowing down the church tower.

At 10.50am on Sunday, 11th November, the annual Remembrance Service for all those who have died in the service of our country will be held in the church.  Silhouettes of the seventeen men from Ryarsh will be seated in the pews to remember particularly those who gave their lives in the first World War.

You are warmly invited to attend both or either event.
