Armistice 100


RemembranceDoves doves of peace

As part of our commemorations of the centenary of the First World War Armistice, children from Abbey Lane School along with St Chad's Brownies and Guides made poppies which overflowed from the font and doves of peace which were hung above the war memorial.

At our services on Remembrance Sunday, the names of those written on our war memorial were read out and, during our Lifted service, children from St Chad's Kingdom Kids group scattered paper poppies for each of those from the Woodseats area who died in the Great War.

Members of the uniformed groups took part in the packed Lifted service, reading the names, reciting war poetry and praying for our community, nation and world.

Relatives of those who died attended the service, along with people from houses where the soldiers named on our memorial once lived.

Carol Gibson has been researching the names of the soldiers on our war memorial and her findings are available to be read by the war memorial at St Chad's.
