Lest We forget
An evening of reflection, focusing on those who have suffered during periods of conflict over the past 150 years from the Crimea right up to the present day, via the First and Second World Wars, the Spanish Civil War, wars in Afghanistan and the middle east. We told the stories of local people caught up in tragedy, often in their own words, or as expressed in the poetry and songs of the era. We lit the graves of loved ones in the churchyards of St Andrews and the neighbouring public cemetery. We hope we have done them justice, and we know we have yet to uncover many more stories of interest to Clevedon residents. In remembering some of them, we are remembering them all.
