All Faiths Service of Remembrance

the 8th annual All Faiths Service of Remembrance for All Victims of War
Narberth Quakers and Pembrokeshire Peace Group.

11 a.m Saturday 12th November the Celtic Cross [corner of St James Street and Spring Gardens]
The theme is Peace and Reconciliation.
During the service we will lay a wreath of mixed red and white poppies in memory of all victims of war, military ad civilian.

On Friday 11th there will be a stall near the parking area outside Span Arts between 10.00 and 14.00. There will be white poppies for sale. All monies collected will be donated to Medicins Sans Frontieres.

White Poppies are worn in the run-up to Remembrance Day every year by thousands of people in the UK and beyond. White Poppies have been worn in this way for over eighty years. They are distributed by the Peace Pledge Union (PPU).
There are three elements to the meaning of White Poppies: they represent remembrance for all victims of war, a commitment to peace and a challenge to attempts to glamourise or celebrate war.
