V2 Remembering

Today saw the 75th anniversary of the V2 bomb that fell in Hextable. Telling a story on the unveiling of the first blue plaque here in Hextable. Here are some photos from the event: the souvenir guide to the morning, local history shared by Mr John Meakins - the plaque sponsor, and words from Mrs Sharon Mitchell of the Heritage Society. There was a distinct sense that this history need not be a burden on our memory so much as a gift for our future - this first blue plaque is a gift to the physical crossroads of our community life for all our coming days.

It was great to welcome more than 150 guests and dignitaries this morning in a great community partnership event with Hextable Heritage Society, Hextable Parish Council and ourselves at St Peters Hextable. In times like these the resilience and story of those who went ahead of us, inspires our living and faithfulness now.
