Lest We Forget

10th October 2018


On 8th& 9th of November the village of Areley Kings is putting on a play in the church.

It tells the story of how at the end of WW1, the small village raised £235 to build a war memorial to the 14 young men of the village, killed in the war.

Philip Greenway has built a replica of the memorial and we are going to build it in the church during the play and also tell the stories of the soldiers who returned.

In 2014 we put on a play in church to tell the story of our village in WW1. We could do this because we have the parish Magazines, written by Daniel Vawdrey, the Rector at the time, and because Eric Halsall had the researched the military history of our young men who were killed. We gave the profits from the play to Battle Back a charity which helps service men & women injured mentally or physically in combat.

We realised that in 1918 there was nothing to help returning soldiers except their families. So in their memory we are putting on this play to raise money for Battle Back. Please help us by coming to the play.

Tickets are £10. £5 for children.
