Join us on Sunday November 12th for an afternoon remembering the animals who served in two World wars.
While they may not feature as prominently in Armistice Day services, since World War Two there's been a huge desire to recognise the role animals played in conflict. The Dickin medal, the equivalent of the military's Victoria Cross, was established in 1943 by the PDSA . There's even a purple poppy specifically to remember the animals who died.
Equines, dogs, pigeons and even elephants, should be remembered as they are the forgotten victims. Please join us for the afternoon for a presentation and a a non religious service. Hear their stories and remember their heroism. A collection will be made on behalf of BPH and the Poppy Appeal.
Afternoon tea will be available consisting of homemade cakes, scones with clotted cream and jam, coffee/tea and soft drinks. The bar will be open serving beer and wine.
The cost of afternoon tea will be 10 euros.
Please book in advance if you wish to stay on for tea, so that we can cater for the numbers.
