June, A Wonderful Month on The Somme
Posted on 30th June 2014 by Julie and David Thomson in General News.
As this newsletter is published we will be taking part in the 1st July commemorations at Lochnagar Crater – beginning with a maroon being fired at 7.28am and a lone piper coming out of the mist as whistles blow…a time for remembrance and reflection of those events 98 years ago.
We will report on the commemorations in next month’s newsletter.
We have had a wonderful month here at no.fifty6 . We have had some lovely weather (as well as some heavy showers). The poppies are out and the birds are singing. Most of all, we continue to be blessed with some wonderful guests who we have had the privilege of getting to know over the month.
