Thank you to everyone who helped out with the weekends events and those who attended the service. I think in the circumstances we did our brave servicemen proud. There will be the usual Remembrance Service on Sunday 14th November 2021 at 1030 am.
Sunday 12th September 2021 – 100th Anniversary of Erection of War Memorial
(Updated 29th September 2021)
It was with regret we had to announce that the 100th anniversary event planned for Sunday 13th September 2020 to mark the erection of our war memorial for the parish of West Down was postponed for a year due to COVID. It will now be held on Sunday 12th September 2021 commencing at 10.30am subject to government COVID guidance at the time.
Please note that due to the level of COVID cases in north Devon a review has been undertaken about what events will go ahead over this weekend and in what form. The risk based review has concluded that we need to scale back on some of the planned activities. The final plan is now set out below.
Outline of events/activities:
In the event of significant inclement weather the majority of the service will be held in St Calixtus and be subject to the COVID provisions set out on the main church page (and notices).
Also, refreshments will be taken inside the church and Iron Room.
A few gazebos will be erected if necessary to provide protection from the weather for Rev Steve and the sound system.
