On Sunday, 14th November 2021 we invite you to visit The Lost Gardens of Heligan, anytime from 10 a.m., alone or with friends and family, to find your own personal space and time to remember.
Pre-booking will be essential and will facilitate a spread of arrivals over the day.
If you are a paying visitor, we will to donate the full cost of your admission to the Royal British Legion on your behalf. If you have a Heligan Membership or Locals’ Pass, we invite you to make a donation upon arrival.
As per last year, we shall be giving a beautiful white flower to everyone on arrival, to lay wherever and whenever you wish in your own personal remembrance. We will also be offering candles to be lit in memory of a loved one in the Crystal Grotto / Wishing Well.
We have chosen to continue to support The Royal British Legion, as we have done over many years.
The National Census most recently undertaken in March 2021 included for the first time, after their successful campaign, a section to identify war veterans. The new information gathered will facilitate the provision of more targeted services in the future. 2021 will also see the first publication of the 1921 Census, a century after it was collated. This we very much hope will shine more of a light on the post-WW1 history of Heligan. Indeed, if anyone locally has anything further to offer in this respect, do please contact me.
Whilst Remembrance is necessarily focused on the Passed, both those known and unknown, increasingly we feel it important to find reasons for Hope in the Future and to work hard together in their memory to fulfil our children’s and our grandchildren’s dreams.
