WALL OF REMEMBRANCE

Following on from the success of the Sea of Remembrance in 2017 in Winchester, we wanted to do something equally as special for 2018 as we remember many anniversaries and also the 100th Anniversary of the end of World War One.

In 2018 we are creating a chapel of remembrance with a wall of knitted poppies and a book that will list the names of those remembered on the wall.  

To make this happen, we will need people to knit poppies and send them to us to form this special and unique wall of remembrance.  The patterns will be available on this website shortly.

The chapel of remembrance with the wall of poppies will then be open during the daytime in the week up to Remembrance Day and  there will be a special service of reflections on remembrance at Sunset on the Friday of Remembrance Weekend and Sunset on Remembrance Day.

The 2018 Wall of Remembrance will be situated in Selsey in West Sussex.  57 Men from this small village died during World War One and are remembered on the War Memorial outside the Parish Church in the town.

The Village and surrounding areas played an active role in World War Two and the nearby RAF Tangmere also was a key airfield during the Battle of Britain.

In the anniversary year of the Royal Air Force it is appropriate that the Wall of Remembrance takes place near Tangmere and also in a Village that has played an important role in both World Wars.

Each poppy knitted can be in remembrance of someone who has died in war and conflict in the past 100 years or in memory of an unknown veteran.  

The pattern for the Knitted Poppies are below and these should be sent to us by the 1st November 2018
Please send the knitted Poppies to
