World War One Commemoration Sunday 21st September 2014

2014 sees the centenary of the start of World War One.

Kingsley Parish has recorded on its memorials the names of 27 men who lost their lives as a result of their service in the war.

A small group has been quietly working away in the background to ensure that the parish commemorates this anniversary.

On Sunday 21st September there will be an exhibition in the village hall from 1pm until 3.30pm.

This will reveal the results of the groups research to date, what is planned in the future and a general display from the period in the parish’s history.

Tea and cakes etc will be on sale.

At 4pm there will be a service held in the church.

This date was picked as on 22nd September 1914 the first parishioner George Harris Smith lost his life serving with the Royal Navy in the North Sea. It seemed a poignant date to pick to hold the service.

The village hall will remain afterwards until 6pm for those wishing to visit the exhibition.

We look forward to lots of people from the parish coming together to mark this occasion.
