Perspex soldierOver 500 children – and many other members of the public – attended Christ Church URC Haydock to experience a week-long exhibition around Remembrance, commemorating 100 years since the end of WW1.

Church member Jane Burgess explained, “The church was decorated by five local schools and was open to the public and schools for a week after Remembrance weekend.  Over 500 schoolchildren came to learn about the war and our teenagers ran the cafe. Some children wrote poems.

Boots for Remembrance“Boots were crafted out of corrugated cardboard and represented the soldiers marching home. Around them were 10 perspex figures, representing the soldiers who didn’t come home.

"It was amazing and many, many local people came through our doors to remember and share.
