Village Hall Remembrance

Remembrance at Catforth Village Hall

  • Mrs Yates helped us to find out why the poppy is a symbol of remembrance and how it should be worn. The leaf should point to 11 o'clock.
  • A cross with 22 poppies has been installed in front of the village hall; one for each soldier from Catforth who lost their life in World War One. Their names are inscribed on a plaque by the door.
  • Beautiful poppy windows have been installed. This one faces west to catch the light when the sun is going down, as in the famous poem.
  • Three young men from Catforth lost their lives in World War Two.  This plaque inside the village hall remembers them.
  • The memorial plaque on the front of the village hall.
  • Beautiful poppy gates at the entrance of Catforth Memorial Hall.
  • Catforth's soldier.  'There but not there.'
