Last summer, our school create 7 commemorative pieces of bunting for the exhibition which opens today:
383 men from Faversham died in the service of their country during WW1, but until now their names have not been recorded collectively.
To commemorate the centenary of Armistice in November 1918, Faversham Town Council invited members of the public to create a piece of bunting for each of those who died. Many descendants responded, as well as schools and youth organisations.
The bunting will be on display in alphabetical order in both galleries at the Town Council Offices at 12 Market Place from Friday 2nd November until Monday 26th November. A recording of all the names will be broadcast on a continuous loop.
In the gallery there will also be a display of memorials, which illustrates the ways in which we memorialise the fallen, ranging from original graves in France, memorials in local churches and the new Memorial Garden in Stone Street.
This free exhibition will be on display from Friday 2nd November until Monday 26th November and has been jointly funded by Faversham Town Council and Swale Borough Council.
