Abbey United Reformed Church, Romsey

WW1 Project Update February 2017

In the words of Kitchener, We Need Your Help!

The community events are coming up and we are looking for volunteers to help bring them about and do justice to the spirit of the Church Community in 1917.  There are three events that need your help, and we are specifically looking for:

10 February, Variety Show:

around 4 people to help front-of-house on the evening

a gang of people to help decorate the hall

a piano player for the evening (to accompany the acts as they are volunteered)

acts for the evening

June, Summer Fete:  

Volunteers to help organise the event both before and on the day

1–5 July, Romsey Festival:

a gang of volunteers to help set up the church, build the exhibits and man the event

volunteers for recitals during the 4 days of the event.

Tickets for the Variety Show will be available nearer the event – watch out for the posters when they go up and, if you are still considering the trip to France, we do still have a few places but final date for inclusion will be Friday 17th February.

For more details on those we have researched you can now check the website out that we have launched for the project,, we will be updating this as we go.[cc1]
