Villager Ken Diccox has been helping Faringdon British Legion by selling poppies to Fernham villagers over the past 2 weeks. Have you bought yours yet?
Remembrance Sunday Service is at 09.00 am on 12 November 2017 at St John’s Church and there will also be a service of Remembrance at 10.30 am at St Mary’s Church, Longcot, where Fernham’s Fallen will be read out at the War Memorial before the Last Post is sounded. It would be so good to have younger villagers come to these special services to remember those who gave their all for us.
This year you may also see some people wearing a golden poppy, this is a special poppy created in metal by the Royal British Legion to commemorate the anniversary of the Battle Of Passchendaele, you can buy your here: www.poppyshop.org.uk
