Heroes All memorial bookRemembrance Sunday 2018

This was particularly special this year because of the centenary of the end of the First World War. We were pleased to receive the book 'Heroes All' presented to us by Eric Chown at Creech St Michael. It contained his research into those who are remembered on our war memorial in the churchyard. We have placed it in the church for anyone to view if they would like to.

At Ruishton we were very impressed by the wonderful cross of poppies made by In Stitches @ St George’s! It must have taken hours to make all those poppies!

We were also pleased to receive two Perspex figures from the “There but not There” project from the charity “Remembered” which seeks to support those injured in war. They were donated for Remembrance weekend, and were a haunting reminder of those from our communities who are no longer with us because of war. They were in place at Creech and Ruishton churches for the weekend.
