Remembrance Day 2018

Remembrance Day is on the 11th November, it marks the day that World War 1 ended at 11 am on the 11th day, of the 11th month in 1918.

To mark this day, St George’s Crypt clients from the Wednesday art group, handcrafted some poppies and, with the help of staff these were laid out on the Crypt garden with an impressive cascading display draped over The Crypt Angel.

In addition, our clients from the Friday art group produced some artwork for a Remembrance arts exhibition to be held at St George’s Crypt Church on Sat.10th Nov from 10 – 4 pm. and Sun 11 at from 12 – 3 pm. Each artwork is inspired by stories held on each of the 53 men whose names are on the Church’s memorial.

The significance of the poppy is a lasting memorial symbol which represents the immeasurable sacrifice made by those who died in World War One and later conflicts.
