Poppies and a peel of bells will help villagers remember
VILLAGERS in Kingsley and Kingsley Holt have decorated their churches and the community’s high street in remembrance of the end of the First World War.
Kingsley St Werburgh’s Church, Kingsley Holt Methodist Chapel and a house in High Street, Kingsley, have been decorated, with 29 knitted poppies also on display to remember the 29 local men who died in WWI.
At 10.55am on Sunday, November 11 there will be the traditional Act of Remembrance held at the war memorial where the ‘Last Post’ will be played and after a minute’s silence the names will be read out of 37 men including those who died in WW1 but also WW2 and the Korean War.
Those present are then invited to attend the Sunday service at St Werburgh’s Church.
Following the service there will be the opportunity to view a display of local research into WW1 as well as free refreshments.
The day’s events will culminate at the war memorial at 6.55pm with the playing of the ‘Last Post’. This will be followed by a minute’s silence and reading out of the names of the 29 men lost in WW1.
At 7pm a beacon designed and constructed by Dan Lucas will be lit.
At 7.05pm the bells of St Werburgh’s Church at Kingsley will ring out 100 times for peace.
