Other Events
‘We Will Remember Them’
2016 marks the Centenary of the Battle of the Somme, which concluded on the 18th November 1916. The Commemoration is being led by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, on behalf of the UK Government and the French Government in partnership with the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and the Royal British Legion.
This partnership have built a programme of events which reflect the significance of The First World War Somme Campaign.
As a part of these events, and the wider relevance of Remembrance Day, a Weekend of Remembrance is being planned by the Scampton Church Leadership Team.
These events will be held at Scampton Church and Commonwealth War Graves, High Street, Scampton.
The Church will be specially decorated with poppies, both inside and out.
On Friday 11th November at 10:30am
The Weekend of Events will start with a multi-agency commemoration event planned by:
  • AviaCon Heritage Lincolnshire Museums and Schools project
  • Pollyplatt Community Primary School
  • Scampton Church of England Primary School, Scampton
  • Playmates Nursery
  • Curiosity Creators
  • The Dambusters Inn
  • Scampton Church
This will entail the erection of arches along the pathway to the church which will be covered in poppies of all sizes. These have been made by the children under the supervision of ‘Curiosity Creators‘, “. . . who bring art and curiosity to new spaces”, and who were recently involved in creating two of the Barons on the ‘Barons Charter Trail’ in Lincoln to celebrate 800 years of the Magna Carta.
At 11:00 am children from the schools involved will place a large poppy on each of The Commonwealth War Graves, and Mr. Les Rutherford, a Bomber Command Veteran, will lay a wreath on the German war graves.
On Saturday 12th November between 2:00pm and 4:30pm
The Church and Remembrance Chapel will be decorated and especially lit for an afternoon of reflection.
Visitors are invited to view the historical building, poppy displays and the Commonwealth War Graves adorned with poppies.
Refreshments will be available.
On Sunday 13th November at 10:15am
A Special Service of Remembrance amongst multitudes of poppies will be held in the Church and around the War Memorial.
