‘There But Not There’
Centenary Commemoration of the end of the First World War
The centenary of Armistice Day on 11th
November falls next month. ‘
There but not
there’
is a national installation which will
place transparent silhouettes of names from
local war memorials into their places of
worship, their school, their workplace or
wherever their absence was keenly felt. It
may well be the defining centenary
commemoration of the end of the 1914-1918
war, with the figures of men and women
from across the country placed back in the
communities they left behind. A poignant
reminder of a powerful anniversary.
Nearby St George’s Church in Mossley will
have ten perspex head and shoulders placed
in their pews. These will represent local
Mossley men: 7 who fell in the war, 2 who
returned and 1 as the
unknown soldier. The
stories of all these soldiers
will also be displayed. St
George’s Church will be
open from 5th to the 11th of
November from 10am to
5pm each day. If anyone
would like to find out more,
or organise a group visit,
please contact Father David on 01457
237667.
A Vigil Service will held at 6.30pm in many
churches across the country on Saturday
10th November.
