University Chapel Remembrance

November 5, 2018 - November 9, 2018


From 5th – 9th November the university will be remembering the former students of Cheltenham Training College and pupils of St. Paul’s Practising School who lost their lives in the First World War.

264 poppies are being crocheted by staff and alumni in remembrance of those who died – 96 for students from the college, and 168 for pupils from the school. These poppies will be displayed in the Chapel during the week leading up to Remembrance Sunday with information about each former student. An online Roll of Honour for these 264 alumni will launch on 5th November.

All are welcome to visit the Chapel to see the installation during the week. Along with the display there will be poems reflecting on the war by the local Dymock Poets and opportunities to make our own response.
