Southgate Remembers:  On the 11th November we will be commemorating the 100th anniversary of the end of World War 1 with a special service of Remembrance.  In the week before that we will be holding a week of displays and events to remember the debt we owe to those who fell in the cause of freedom.  This will start with a Requiem for All Souls which will include the names from our War Memorial.  To ensure the week is a real community event we are looking for any special documents, family stories or objects to use in the exhibitions and events that will help the current generation really understand the individual and personal sacrifices that were made in the very recent past.

If you have anything that you would like to share or have any good ideas, or would like to act as a host to make the week even more memorable, please speak to the wardens or Fr Chrichton.
