Rememberance Sunday 11/11/2018

11 Nov

At 11am on November 11, 1918, the deafening guns of the killing fields of France and Belgium fell silent. They had claimed more than enough lives.  The so-called Great War – in which an estimated 10 million military personnel were killed – was over. In commemoration to those who sacrificed their lives during the Great War – which came to an end 100 years ago, Mary and Joseph House residents and staff watched the services on the TV and all stood together for the two minute silence, everyone has there one story to tell and we are proud to show their respect to those that have fallen “We will remember them”                                                                    Residents created this Poppy Wall
