Remembrance 2020

On Thursday, the 5th of November we had a Remembrance Tea Party in church. About 160 people, including HE Sir Ian Calder and Lady Calder and 3 ex Bailiffs, came to have tea and cake and the church was filled to the rafters with poppies of all sizes.

The youngsters of the Sunday Club made a scaled model (1:20) of the London Cenotaph out of Duplo!

They had done some research and answered some questions on both the Cenotaph and the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior in Westminster Abbey which was part of the display inside in the side chapel. This was to mark the 100th anniversary of the unveiling of both these monuments.

The display will be up until Sunday 22nd November. There is a fantastic light show of falling poppies down the Tower too so look out for it when driving by in the dark!

The Revel on 1st August was fantastic..The whole day was a great success!! The weather was just perfect with enough cloud to guarantee that everyone did not dash off to the beach! The number attending was much greater than in past years, obviously helped by Covid 19 restrictions of no foreign travel and the cancellation of many of the usual Guernsey summer events.

Raffle tickets had already been sold very successfully prior to the event at several  locations and on the day the remaining 835 tickets of the original 6,000 were all sold by 2pm!

Many of the stalls were completely sold out by the end of the day. The money has all been banked and after all costs we raised just over £10,500 which is truly amazing.

A great day with fun for all the family. A wonderful community affair,,,a real country fete! A huge thank you t all who helped with sponsorship and donations in the Raffle. And of course to all the congregation that worked so hard on the day!

Our past REMEMBRANCE Events…….

Last year we had 4 delightful Chelsea Pensioners come to our annual Tea Party. Always such fun! The church was packed with not only masses of poppies but also  around 120 people!

A wonderful community event ! Several of the island’s residential and nursing homes attended with some of their residents, who thoroughly enjoyed the tea.

The display this year was greatly enhanced  by the loan of some stunning watercolours done by Peter Burkhardt’s grandfather, Major Valentine Burkhardt DSO, and painted in 1917/ 1918. If you haven’t seen    them yet please do come into church and look at the poppy display, the paintings and also an installation in the side chapel of details of the names on our Memorial.
