Lest we forget banner reminding people that this year marks the centenary of the start of the Great War EMN-140707-165736001

A banner and stained-glass panel have been created to commemorate 100 years since the start of the First World War.

The banner with the words Lest We Forget and a stained-glass panel depicting poppies and cross now adorn a corner of Thurlby Methodist Church ready for the anniversary on August 4.

The banner was made by the church’s craft group and the stained glass is the handiwork of Jill Ward and Miriam Bell.

Mrs Bell, a member of the village church for 17 years, said: “It is to remind people about the war.

“There is so much going on to commemorate it we thought we should do something too.

“It is important that we should remember because our ancestors gave their lives so that we can have the freedom that we enjoy today.”
