St Augustine’s Heritage And Poppy Weekend

St Augustine’s Heritage And Poppy Weekend

Today it was my honour to be invited to the St Augustine’s Church 2017 Heritage and Poppy weekend.

Please take the time to go along to St. Augustine’s Church today if you are able.

This is their Heritage and Poppy Weekend and there is an exhibition in the church in commemoration and remembrance of our heroes of World War One.

The exhibition focuses on the Battle of Passchendale along with the history of men from Wisbech who died in the Great War.

It really is an exceptional, poignant and respectful exhibition which is well worth a visit to learn about the town’s heroes and their history and to remember those who have fallen.

The church is open until 4PM.
