War Memorial poem NOW ONLINE
Those of you who were able to attend the Breamish Valley War Memorial Dedication on Saturday 27 October 2018 will, no doubt, have enjoyed the poem ‘To The Fallen Of The Breamish Valley’ by Northumbrian dialect poet James Tait.
James wrote a moving three-stanza poem in remembrance of the 39 servicemen from the Breamish Valley who lost their lives during the two World Wars.
Breamish Valley War Memorial dedicated
On Saturday 27 October 2018 the Breamish Valley War Memorial Project came to its planned conclusion – the dedication of the War Memorial to the 39 servicemen from the Breamish Valley who lost their lives in the two World Wars.
The ceremony, which was conducted by Revd Jane Wood, took place at 2:30pm in the Powburn Community Garden. With well over 100 people attending, and with glorious sunshine (on a day that had seen the first slight snow fall of the Autumn in Powburn village), everything went smoothly.
Local War Memorials added
As part of the ongoing Breamish Valley War Memorial Project, information on three local war memorials has been added to the website. Each memorial includes the names of some of the servicemen whose names now appear on the Breamish Valley War Memorial that will be dedicated on 27 October 2018. The three local war memorials are as follows.
