Forthcoming services and events in St Disen’s Church to mark All Souls Day on 2nd November and Armistice Day on 11th November.
4th November All Souls Memorial Service 4.00pm
A reflective service to remember loved ones.
10th November Bradninch Remembers, 7.30pm
An evening of reflection and performance to mark the centenary of the end of WWI, with David Davies and Heloise West.
11th November Armistice/Remembrance Day
Armistice Day begins at the War Memorial outside the Guildhall at 10.45am before moving down to St Disen’s Church for the Remembrance Service.
And, in memory of all the men and women of Bradninch who paid the ultimate price in the service of their country we have a new page on our website: Lest We Forget. They are more than names.
The silhouette of a WWI soldier has been set up outside the Guildhall. The soldier is part of a nationwide art installation called ‘There But Not There‘, as a reminder of the ultimate sacrifice made by so many during the war and in doing so raise funds for the charity Remembered.
Close to the war memorial, ‘visible’ to all passers by and backed by a wall of poppies, this is a good place for a soldier. The beautiful poppies, crafted by the Bradninch WI and others have blossomed profusely, just as their real counterparts did on the fields of Flanders a century ago. The purple poppies are a reminder of the thousands of animals that also served, and died, during the war.
Come and join us in the Guildhall on Saturday 13th October for a Harvest Hoedown with JAMAS.
Ploughmans and pud from 6.30pm. Barn Dance from 8.00pm
Adults £5.00, under 16s £2.50, under 5s free.
Tickets available from Bradninch Spar
A poster put together by our Tiddlywinks Group to remind us that God is the creator of all lovely things.

A cheerful, chatty group of church friends came together on Sunday afternoon to enjoy a special tea, including egg sandwiches, scones with cream and jam, Victoria sponge and apple cake, to celebrate the end of our Gift Week.
