Commemorating the end of World War I

Ros Lane writes:
On Friday 26 October 2018 - please note the day: Friday - Maisemore Local History Society will be commemorating the end of World War I with a special event at St Giles Church, Maisemore.

Doors open at 7pm and the evening starts at 7:30pm with an illustrated slideshow by Rose Hewlett entitled "Village Life between 1914 - 1918". We will then take a break for coffee or tea. The second half of the evening will be the reading of the names of the men of Maisemore who marched out of the village some to return but others not so, followed by a poetry reading by Clive Hook.

The vicar, John Longuet Higgins will say prayers, and to conclude Clive Hook will sing Ave Maria.

The event will be in St. Giles Church, Maisemore starting at 7:30 p.m. and there will be no entry charge. Visitors and particularly Maisemore residents welcome - please note there is no visitor charge for this event.

ADVANCE NOTICE: The November meeting will be held on Thursday 29 November 2018 and will be a talk entitled "Social Life in the Stroud area in Old Postcards” by Howard Beard. This will be back at the village hall as usual.
