Wednesday 7th November "Rural Life"

Salisbury Civic Society will be showing a film on Rural Life at St John's Place, Lower Bemerton, on Wednesday November 7th. This follows the very successful screening of a film on Railways in January. The new film is 'an evocative exploration of the countryside of the UK, taking in the diverse and beautiful landscapes of all our home nations. It takes audiences down the country lanes of the past, meandering through the dwindling customs of another era'.


Door open 6.00 for 6.30 film, Tickets £3 (available on the door), Refreshments on sale

Sunday 11th November: Remembrance Day - from 10:45

Gillian Newton will be leading the Bemerton Remembrance Service at the War memorial Lychgate on Sunday Nov 11th. This year it will be a rather special service, with Remembrance Day falling on the 11th Nov itself and on the 100th anniversary of the Armistice. 

The short service begins at 10:45 sharp and will include the reading of the names of all the servicemen remembered on our War Memorial and the observance of the 2 minutes silence at 11 am.  Medals will be worn with pride.

After the service refreshments will be served in St John's Place, there will be a presentation of the story of the War dead of the Parish on the big screen and maps will show the wide ranging theatres of war in which local people served (and died). 

Children from Bemerton St John School Choir will be singing. All are welcome.
