Just a reminder that there will be a short Service of Remembrance at the war memorial at 11.00 on Sunday morning. If you would like to join us, please gather at the memorial five or ten minutes before the start.
After the service, the FVA will be serving teas and coffee in the village hall, and all are welcome to join us for a socially-distanced cuppa and chat. To comply with current regulations, please bring a mask to wear when entering or moving about the hall. As the service is outdoors, masks are not mandatory and are a matter of personal choice.
The small village of Fearnan lost a disproportionate number of its young men in the Great War, all of whom are commemorated on the war memorial. We have photos of seven of them (see below) and there is more information about them and the role they played in the war in this previous post: Remembering WW1 on the FVA website.
If you have photos, stories or info for the FVA blog, please get in touch with Fiona on firstname.lastname@example.org.
