Commemoration of the Battle of the Somme
To mark the centenary of the start of the Battle of the Somme, the Friends of Caversham Court Gardens and the Caversham Branch of the British Legion will be gathering in Caversham Court Gardens. A short ceremony will be held in the vinery, where Head Gardener Will Paice will have planted up a special commemorative border. The President of Caversham Branch of the Royal British Legion will recite The Exhortation (Ode to the Fallen) and then Jason Todd, a Bugler from the Salvation Army, will sound The Last Post and two minutes Silence will be observed. Members of the public are most welcome to join us. An exhibition about Caversham in World War One will be on display, and the Ways & Means Trust will be serving refreshments in the Tea Kiosk throughout the day.
