AFTeR a very poignant and lovely service of remembrance at the War Memorial and St Peter’s church, crowds of people came to the village hall to mark the centenary and remember and celebrate the end of WW1. An old Roadmans cart or

a Tumble, as it is commonly called, owned by Arthur Musk and made locally, stood at the entrance. A large painting of a poppy by Annie Rice, depicting a clock face stopped at 11am, greeted guests and welcome drinks were served on arrival. John Levy, the standard bearer for the Royal British Legion presented the standard. John has been the standard bearer and worked tirelessly for the Royal British Legion for thirty years and the

day also marked his retirement from this role. He will however, continue to support them in their very worthy cause, providing lifelong support for the Armed Forces community. A wonderful array of precious artefacts and memorabilia, brought by the families of people who had fought in WW1, were on display along with numerous information boards and posters from the time. Two sculptures, one of which featured an ‘eternal’ flame, were commissioned by Arthur Musk and David Cox and produced by Gary Mays who came along to join us at the event. A tree of poppies supplied by the Commons Group was on the stage, decorated with

37 hand knitted poppies, knitted by the community, in memory of the 37 people from the village who lost their lives in the war. The poems In Flanders Field by John McCrea and We Shall Keep the Faith by Moina Michael, were beautifully handwritten by Bruce Attenborough and on display. Roger and Janice Claxton put together all the information boards and a revolving PowerPoint display featuring pictures and information and including a film from the time, supplied by Sue and Tony Gow. Margaret Goldstone and the

ladies of St Peter’s Church held a wonderful raffle which raised £338.70 and all proceeds are going to the Royal British Legion. Along with the ladies

It also involves dealing with the team of digital printers and print finishers to answer any queries that may arise.

The candidate should be polite, enthusiastic, well organised and adaptable. The digital department often runs to very tight deadlines so it is vital that the candidate can handle the pressures of a print production environment and can manage their work flow effectively. Full training will be given so previous experience in print is not necessary but administrative experience would be preferable. The role is perfect for someone looking to start a new career in a thriving family owned company with the ability to progress as part of dynamic team.

of the Methodist Chapel, they also baked numerous scrumptious cakes. The ladies of the WI, led by Felicity Jelliffe, Cheryl Foster and Wendy Mendham produced endless bowls of delicious home-made hot soup and a table spread with a mountain of food and cheerfully served teas all afternoon. Mick Nichols our MC for the day, gamely made himself heard over the crowd to announce the grand unveiling of the art exhibit, which was performed by Molly and Lana. This had been produced by the children of class 4 (year 5/6) this year and last year at the Wenhaston Primary School. This stunning art work was a team effort by the children, bought together by Wil Harvey and Mrs Jan Milne and Analisa Jenkins (class teacher) and Viv Burns led the sessions down at the village hall and provided lots of materials and tools to complete the project. The first panel, ‘The War’ is especially moving: the children collected items which might have been found in the battlefield mud, and wrote letters they imagined might have come from the soldiers to their loved ones back home; these are tucked into the envelope seen near the bottom, alongside a

communion book from the period. The grand premiere of The

Wenhaston Ukulele Band followed, with a wonderful performance of several songs from the era. The band was only formed seven months ago by Phil and Denise Corbett and months of practice paid off as they strummed and sang along, with the crowd joining in with all the old songs. A book, written and produced as a WI project in the village - Wenhaston War Memorial – The Stories behind the names, was for sale. It is about the people with connections to Wenhaston who died during the two World Wars. Further copies are available for sale from the Post Office. Together with the sale of knitted poppies, both before and during the event, they raised £163 for the Royal British Legion. It was a very memorable occasion and overwhelming to see how many people came along to remember the sacrifice so many made, and to celebrate the centenary of the end of WW1. The village hall has funded much of the expense for the day and a cheque for over £600 will be on its way shortly to the Royal British Legion.
