ON JUNE 6th 2020 Stoulton will celebrate 900 years of local history in St. Edmund's Church

COMING HOME!

A community event to mark the end of World War One

Sunday 4th November from 3-5pm

Please be seated in Stoulton Church by 2.55pm

This special event will be held in the Church, Church Lane and the Village Hall, it will start in the church.  Everyone is invited to follow life in Stoulton through the war years as we premier a specially prepared audio-visual presentation of the war years. The VISION 2020 History Group is doing the research, local volunteers of all ages are making the flags and banners and members of the Evesham Concert Band are preparing music to play as the volunteers, and later the conscripts, march off to war.  The tenor of the music will change as ‘exuberance’ diminishes and news of the battles and all the deaths start coming in. In 1918 the soldiers will ‘all’ march back. Some will be wounded, all will be dishevelled and some will be carrying a 'There but not there'  silhouette … and the band will play! Once back in the church the stories of those who did not come back will be told, the wounded will not speak but their relatives will wear their stories on their backs. 

 

Everyone will then be invited to join a procession to the Village Hall for an ‘austerity’ tea (£3 per head).  Serving military and and veterans will have been invited to share their 21st century stories over a cup of tea and some cake. There will be collections for Combat Stress and Help for Heroes. 

 

We hope that many local people will join us in remembering the fallen in St Edmund's Church the following Sunday, November 11th, at 6pm.
