there but not there

OUR installation, There but not There , honouring the seven men of Downham and Twiston who died in the Great War 1914-18 was completed exactly one hundred days before the anniversary of the Armistice on 11th November and will remain open until Remembrance Day. The exhibit comprises even Perspex cut-out men spread around the church in the pews that they left unoccupied one hundred years ago. At each pew there is a brief description of the fallen man and, at the back of Church, a booklet with some additional information. There is a Poppy banner at the gate inviting everyone to come inside and view the installation.
