The Parish Council be will taking part in the national There But Not There project this year.
There But Not There aims to place transparent silhouettes representing those who were killed in the First World War back within their local communities for Remembrance 2018, the centenary commemoration of the end of the 1914-1918 War.
The project aims to Commemorate, Educate and Heal
Commemorate those who died in the First World War through installations of silhouettes wherever there is a Roll of Honour.
To Educate all generations, particularly today’s younger generation, born nearly 100 years after the outbreak of WW1, to understand what led to the deaths of 888,246 British and Commonwealth service personnel.
Heal today’s veterans who are suffering from the mental and physical wounds of their service by raising funds to pay for their care and support.
The Parish Council are supporting the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal again this year by putting up over 200 lamppost poppies across the Parish. Thank you to Bob of the Parish Environmental Team who will be out in all weathers to put the poppies up.
The Parish Council have installed a Silent Soldier at Newdale Primary School to stand alongside the School’s wonderful Poppy Rocks display at the school entrance.
Thanks to Bob for installing in what proved to be very hard ground!
To mark the centenary of the end of World War One the Royal British Legion is inviting the public to take part by saying “Thank You” to the First World War generation who served, sacrificed and rebuilt the nation.
In support of the Thank You movement The Parish Council are pleased to announce that we have installed two Silent Soldiers – one on permanent display outside the Parish Office and one to be displayed during the annual period of Remembrance at Newdale Primary School.
Please see attached the annual Governance Statement and Account Statement following the completed external audit.
