Pea and Pie supper. Friday 6th September 2019
As part of the commemorative events arranged for the weekend of 6,7,8th September 2019 to mark 80 years since the outbreak of WW2, organisers have announced a Pea and Pie supper to be held at Haslington Cricket Club, room kindly supplied by club management. Very much food of the 1940’s, pea and pie was a staple food for many families at the time, and was therefore thought appropriate as part of this early evening event.
The Crewe Concert Band (appearance kindly sponsored by Duchy Homes) will be playing music from the 1940’s including military music, Dambusters, 633 Squadron and White Cliffs of Dover.
In order that attendees can reflect respectfully on the events of 1939 to 1945, Year 6 pupils from Haslington Primary School who have been studying the relevant historical period will be creating a display on the subject of ‘Peace’. This will chime with the theme of Peace which has been chosen for the multi denominational Church Service which is to be held at 2.30pm the following day (Sat 7th September) at St Matthews Church, Crewe Road, Haslington. Pupils from the Dingle Primary school will take part in the service.
Hog Roast Saturday 7th September.
To follow on from the Church Service, a Hog Roast will be hosted at St Matthews Church Hall, Park Road, Haslington, 5pm to 7pm. In order to allow attendees to reflect on the events of 1939 to 1945, the Peace display created by Year 6 pupils of Haslington Primary School will be placed within the hall. This will allow residents who were unable to be at the Friday pea and pie supper to view the display.
In addition, a Memory Board will be on display in the hall, constructed by volunteers, populated by WW2 memories, articles and photographs kindly provided by residents. These items will be collected by St Matthews Church (see Memory Box in church porch and informative notice in Parish Newsletter). Attendees will be able to view the items respectfully at their leisure and reflect accordingly. Afterwards, organisers are pleased to advise that the Memory Board will be relocated to the Church for further viewing in the lead up to Remembrance Sunday.
