LEST WE FORGET05-12-19
For many days Birchy Hill has spent preparing themselves for Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day.
We put Poppies and flags in and outside the Home and put up a display in Reception area. The residents made their own little remembrance crosses and were painting and making Poppies in their Arts and Crafts sessions.
Tony Devereux from St Luke’s Church in Sway delivered a short Remembrance Service last week. Saturday night and Sunday morning the residents had the possibility to watch the televised programme from the Royal Albert Hall and the Cenotaph.
On Monday, at 11.11 hours we had a minute of Silence. Afterwards we stayed together to listen to related poems and hymns.
