“Unbroken Glory-Gathered Radiance” – Rupert Brooke

A project to honour those who fought and those who died in war. If you have the names of anyone you wish to commemorate, whether you, or they, have a connection with the village of Dorchester, and/or you would like to make a poppy, you are invited to join in.

Unbroken Glory – Gathered Radiance is part of Dorchester’s Community Tribute, to mark the Centenary Anniversary of the Armistice of World War One, which will be on display in Dorchester Abbey from November 1st.

Details in the back of the Abbey, including a form to fill in with the names of those you wish to be commemorated and a kit to knit a poppy.

Come to the Community Tribute workshop and help to make the commemorative cloth for the display. Dorchester Village Hall, Sunday 21st October, 2-4pm ALL AGES. Cuppa and cake. Something for everyone to do whatever age or ability.

Thank you to everyone who has already donated red wool or black buttons. We would welcome further donations – please deliver to the Rectory marked ‘for poppies’. To those of you who have knitted poppies – thank you very much; they are really beautiful.
