A weekend of Remembrance
The community of Mangotsfield would like to spend time reflecting and remembering those that gave their lives during WW1. St. James Church have invited local schools and groups to contribute displays for the Church which will be open to the public on Saturday 10th November 10am – 4pm. Refreshments will be served all day and there will be craft activities for children to enjoy.
On Sunday 11th November there will be a service in the Church at 10.30am and at the War Memorial at 12.30pm. Also on Sunday 11th November at 6.30pm, there will be a Beacon lit at Pomphrey Hill Sports Ground to commemorate the centenary of the end of the First World War and this event is being arranged by Emersons Green Council and the Royal British Legion with singing from the Military Wives Choir.
Should you have any memorabilia that could be displayed in the Church for this event or would like to knit poppies to decorate the church then please contact Sally Sibley, School-Community Link Worker 07733256372 email: firstname.lastname@example.org
