First published in News

HELSTON Methodist Church has held its own memorial to commemorate the lives lost in World War One.

Held on the Monday, to commemorate the first day of the War for Britain, the memorial was a presentation photographs in the church.

Members of the congregation whose relatives served during the war were displayed, having collected them from home.

Simon Dunkley, from the Methodist church, who carried out much of the research, said: “It was rather personal and informal, but it was to commemorate.

“There's a lot of character in a black and white photograph.”

There was also a ceremony where pupils from local primary schools Wendron, Parc Eglos and St Michael's brought poppies they had made from card and signed with their names.

Mr Dunkley wanted to credit “the role of local community” in making the exhibition successful.

Visitors attended the church all throughout the day to reflect, and Mr Dunkley described the day as “quite poignant” and having gone “very, very well.”
