On 28th June 1918 the Treaty of Versailles was signed.

The Treaty ended the state of War, but it would be six months later until the Armistice was signed on 11th November 1918 and the fighting ended.

Come and share your thoughts and memories with us at St Michael's over afternoon tea as we commemorate this anniversary and other significant events over the last ten decades.

We will remember those who gave so, much so willingly.

Why The Poppy?

Colonel John McCrae lost a friend during the conflict and was inspired by the sight of Poppies growing an a scarred battlefield, he went on to write the famous poem 'In Flanders Field'.

After World War 1 the Poppy was adopted as a sign of remembrance...….wear a Poppy with pride this Armistice Day.
