CEREMONY: Remembering parted families

editorial image

For the first time in Morpeth, we are holding a small ceremony to mark International Day of the Disappeared.

The Red Cross does wonderful work with its tracing service, seeking to bring families back together after losing contact with loved ones due to conflict.

Work is still going on in relation to those who lost contact during the Second World War and much is going on in the world today that brings its wonderful service to the aid of families that have been separated and individuals who have become isolated.

The event will take place at 4pm on Tuesday, August 30, in the Peace Garden at St Robert’s Church. Anyone who feels moved to join us would be very welcome, and to have a cuppa in the church hall afterwards.
