The banner, made by Bobbie Nugent, bears the name of 89 men from the Frankwell area who served and died on the battlefields of France and the Somme.
Pupils from nearby St George’s School have also been involved in the project, with each pupil given the name of the soldier, which they then wrote on the banner. The church is home to a First World War memorial to the men who never returned home. The vicar of St George’s Church, Reverend Murray McBride, and Mrs Nugent, whose two sons both served in the Army, have produced the banner.
A Remembrance Service will be held at the church on Sunday at 10.30am. Candles representing each of the 89 men will be lit and a shower of poppies will fall from the church roof.
