Parish Council News - Remembrance events

Message from David Sheran, Parish Council.


RUYTON XI TOWNS PARISH COUNCIL
NEWSLETTER UPDATE




Ruyton Remembers

This year is the centenary of the end of World War One. There is special significance because Remembrance Sunday will be 11th November and therefore exactly 100 years since the ceasefire. Ruyton XI Towns is marking the occasion in several ways:

  • Large poppies have been attached to lamp posts throughout the village. You will see names on some of these poppies. They are the names of those from the parish who served and died in the conflict.
  • A special service of remembrance will be held in St John the Baptist Church on Sunday 11 November. It will start at 10:45 to allow people to gather prior to the two minutes silence. Pupils, staff and parents from Packwood School will be attending as will people from the surrounding parishes of Great Ness and Little Ness. Following the service there will be a procession to the war memorial to lay wreaths.
  • A beacon will be lit at 7:00pm on Sunday 11 November. This event is being fully supported by the Parish Council and is part of a nationwide initiative. More details about this event are available on the Parish Council website.



Beacon of Light

Ruyton XI Towns will be commemorating the Centenary of the end of the First World War by lighting a beacon as part of  a nationwide day of events. The huge 5 metre tall beacon will be lit at 7:00pm on Sunday 11th November after The Last Post which will be sounded by a pupil from Packwood School. Our local bell-ringers will ring out the peace at St John the Baptist Church and our town crier will join his voice with others throughout the world in an international Cry for Peace. At around 7:10 Wendy Lowdon will recite a World War One poem, and then a 'Tribute to the Millions' will be read by our vicar Lucinda. This will be followed by reading the names of the fallen and then a medley of songs.

The event is taking place at Rock House, SY4 1LR which is directly above the war memorial. Please note the restrictions/guidelines:

  • There is NO VEHICULAR ACCESS – parking at Rock House is for blue badge holders only – everyone else is encouraged to park at St John's Primary School.
  • NO DOGS PLEASE
  • Assemble in the field at Rock House by 6:45pm
  • Please bring torches – it is dark on the approach to the driveway to Rock House
  • School children from St John's School are advised to wear high visibility jackets – the school have some that can be borrowed for the weekend

The event is due to finish at 7:40 and then the Talbot Inn are providing a Hot Pot Supper but you must pre-book with them if you are intending to go.

Fwd: Ruyton Remembers Sir Frederick Kenyon of Pradoe

It is possible you received this email last night.

For anyone who has visited the acres of World War I headstones in France, you might be surprised to what extent someone from the Eleventowns was responsible.

As WWI drew to its close, the Government started to discuss what would be the best way to commemorate the millions of war dead, as well as uniting the scores of military cemeteries that were now scattered across Europe. 

 Various committees were set up to discuss the best ways of ensuring that all would be remembered equally. In July 1917, Fabian Ware appointed Edwin Lutyens and Herbert Baker as architects with Charles Aitkens, Director of The Tate, authors Sir James Barrie and Rudyard Kipling  to serve on a committee to bring their ideas forward.  They visited the battlefields and cemeteries then returned to formulate views for the various options and designs and were joined in September by Arthur William Hill, Assistant Director of Kew Gardens.

 Frustrated by the lack of progress, the Committee appointed Sir Frederic Kenyon, Director of the British Museum, to complete the deliberations and give a final decision on the way forward.  He was a classical scholar and in his report 'HOW THE WAR CEMETERIES ABROAD WILL BE DESIGNED', his proposals were based on the way the ancient Greeks in 5th century Athens BC honoured their dead.  This was that 'In death all should be equal', no ranks or distinctions were shown as all had made the ultimate sacrifice. On this basis it was agreed that headstones of all the military cemeteries should be uniform and also should be maintained by the British Government in perpetuity.

His report was submitted to Fabian Ware in February 1918 and published in November of that year.  His feeling was that there would be great dissatisfaction in the country if the wealthy were able to raise elaborate tombs to their husbands and sons, but the poor would have none and be forgotten.  To this end the Commonwealth Headstone was designed, all the same colour and size, only the details of each man being given as an individual.   Architect Edwin Lutyens designed the look, layout and stone, with Rudyard Kipling and Sir James Barrie providing suggestions for the wording.  The Commonwealth War Cemeteries of the World are still designed and laid out as per Kenyon's original report.                               

His connections with Ruyton                    

The 11th of the 15 children of John Robert Kenyon and Charlotte Louise Kenyon of Pradoe West Felton. 

He was born in London and married Amy Hunt, whose  sister was Dame Agnes Hunt of Boreatton.  His two sisters Eliza and Emma lived in The Cottage, School Road and played a prominent part in village life, ncluding raising money to build the War Memorial.

Message from Moor Farm - come and get your pumpkins!



Moor Farms Facebook  Moor Farms Twitter Moor Farms Events

Moor Farms
Bread
 
 

Tomorrow!

Tuesday 23rd October - Wednesday 31st October


During our Open Day in June this year we once again offered you the chance to buy, plant your own pumpkin seed and farm it. Many of you did and they have grown fantastically and nearly ready to harvest.

Some people have also adopted pumpkins along the way and tried their hand at pumpkin farming. Whether you have one pumpkin on your plant or three, they are yours for the taking. For those of you who planted your own we have a biggest pumpkin competition again - we will weigh them as you pick them.

If you did not take part -

Do not panic! We planted lots more!

From Tuesday 23rd October until Wednesday 31st October you can come along to Moor Farm and we will walk you down to the pumpkin patch to pick out your very own pumpkin to harvest and buy. You just need to call into the shop for someone to guide you to the pumpkins.

 

Or

We will have lots of pumpkins outside the shop for you to grab and go. 

Pumpkins will be £6 each and please post all your wonderful carvings onto our Facebook page www.facebook.com/moorfarmshop

The Accrington Pals, written by Peter Whelan and directed by Alison Utting, follows the lives of the women left behind when the 'Pals' go to war and the young men who have set off with excitement and expectation of glory, only to suffer enormous losses on the first day of the Battle of the Somme.  A powerful and moving play full of down to earth characters, laughter and warmth which explores social change, women's independence and a mistrust of propaganda.
The Forester's House, written by Neil Rhodes and directed by Pam Johnson, takes you to Ors in France a week before the Armistice.  Wilfred Owen and 7 men from his regiment take shelter in a cellar before their last battle. Camaraderie, a lot of humour as the men joke and banter, their shared experiences and different views on the war – and then the battle which would be the last for Wilfred Owen.
