Centenary of the end of World War I
In order to commemorate the centenary of the end of World War I, the Parish Council held a Service of Remembrance on Oak Tree Green at 3pm on Sunday, November 11th 2018. This was followed by the blessing of a new commemorative bench on the Lower Green.
The Garden of Remembrance was in place on Oak Tree Green and residents were welcome to place poppy crosses there.
Party on the Green
On the coldest day imaginable which came out of nowhere only the most dedicated and hardy of sorts derived anything from what should have been a wonderful event. It was an exercise in steadfast British cheerfulness which most of us managed to maintain throughout the day. Although the weather may have let us down, there is no denying the hard work and dedication of the organisers and everyone is grateful to them for pulling out the stops on such a miserable day.
However, sufficient funds were raised to support Oliver’s Travels in the quest to visit every Teenage Cancer Hospital in the Country, some of which will be done this year and the remainder if the Spring. Ollie is sending regular updates to The Fishbourne where they are on display.
