Remembrance Sunday 2018 falls on the exact day that one hundred years ago World War One ended. Communities across this Country and the Commonwealth had seen their men go off to war over that four year period, far too many of whom were never to return. Hernhill was no different. Of the men from this Parish who went off to fight thirty never came back. This number included six pairs of brothers. Their names are all recorded on our war memorial and, thanks to extensive research by Sue Owen, the stories behind these names are known. An exhibition based on Sue’s research will be in church from Monday 5th to Sunday 18th November, between 10am and 4pm each day. The family names, addresses and places of work of these men will be familiar to many and are a very poignant and sobering reminder of how much we owe to them for their bravery and sacrifice. Please do come and look and remember.
Sat 20th October between 2 and 4pm at Dunkirk Village Hall
After a year out some gardens at Hernhill, Staplestreet and Dunkirk will be opening to the public again including at least one new one. There will be a selection of small and large private gardens, approximately 9 plus one allotment site to visit. Some are within easy walking distance of each other and a few are further apart. They exhibit different styles of planting and garden design at various stages of development. Some will have children’s activities and/or be selling teas, coffees, cakes and plants.
All proceeds will go to the Dawes Community Association and Hernhill Horticultural Society.
Cost: £5.00 per adult and £1.00 per accompanied child aged 4 to 16. Programmes will be available from the beginning of June at the Red Lion Pub, Hernhill and the Three Horsehoes, Staplestreet and on the day from the gardens. All are welcome to come and we look forward to seeing you. Please be aware some of the gardens are less accessible than others.
