The North Cray community  Festival of Remembrance  Sunday 7th  November (the weekend before Remembrance Sunday) Programme - 9.30 am BCP Holy Communion at St James. Followed by a parade from the War Memorial to the Scouts’ Geoffrey Hall, Leafield Lane, North Cray where there will be a display of stories and memorabilia. The planning group are currently gathering items and stories for this display from the local community. The information they need is the name and what they did during the war times. Any uniforms or paperwork, ration books etc should be labelled so they can be returned to the correct person. The stories (with the writer’s permission) will be displayed on the walls of the Scout’s Geoffrey Hall and all stories will be passed on to the Royal British Legion to keep copies on their website so that these accounts of the war will not forgotten but be held for generations to come.  More information about the event will follow soon – book the date in your diary. Let me know if you are interested in taking part and supporting this event and I will pass your details onto the organisers. Rev Ren.
