Remembrance

In addition to the Lamp Post Poppy initiative, there will be three other opportunities for villagers to remember those that have given their lives in conflict on 11th November 2018. 

 At 10.30am there will be a combined Remembrance Service at the Muskham Rural Community Centre, led by Reverend Hadley, assisted by David Gibson a retired minister from the Methodist church, supported by the Choir and Church Wardens, Muskham Primary School and representatives from North Muskham, South Muskham & Little Carlton and Bathley Parish Councils.  

The service will start inside the Centre and move outside for the act of remembrance and laying of wreathes.  The names of the fallen will also be read out.

Moving back inside for the rest of the service, the congregation are invited to stay for refreshments at its conclusion. 

In the evening, the village beacon will be lit, forming part of the national Beacon of Light initiative. Villagers should gather at the beacon, which will be situated on the banks of the River Trent, outside the Ferry Pub at 6.45pm.   At 6.55pm a tribute to the millions will be read by Reverend Hadley, with the beacon being lit at 7pm as HM The Queen lights the beacon in London.  

At 7.05pm we have been lucky to secure a team of bellringers, led by Martin Cooper from Averham, who will ring out the bells of St Wilfrid's as part of the Ringing Out for Peace initiative which sees 1000 cathedrals and churches ringing their bells across the nation in celebration of Peace.  

Villagers are warmly invited to join in the commemorations during the day.
