We remember...

The Ponthafren garden has been decorated with Giant Poppies in time for Remembrance Sunday (13th November 2016).

There have been so many wars in British history and not a single year has passed since the Second World War when a British Serviceman hasn't been killed in action.

Not only do the men and women who serve in the armed forces risk their lives, those of them that do survive often come back from war with unseen mental scars that may never heal. We remember them too. Those who suffered in silence. Those who’s suffering was not noticed, we will remember.

And death shall have no dominion.
Dead man naked they shall be one
With the man in the wind and the west moon; 
When their bones are picked clean and the clean bones gone,
They shall have stars at elbow and foot; 
Though they go mad they shall be sane,
Though they sink through the sea they shall rise again; 
Though lovers be lost love shall not; 
And death shall have no dominion.

Dylan Thomas

We'd like to thank Jan Rogers for her fitting tribute. We hope that they will make people stop and think for a moment and remember what they represent.
