The results and some photos of this year’s show are now available
Ian Simpson and Brian Hird are attempting to gather information for the names on the Melsonby War Memorials(inside the church). There are six name for WW1: James Jackson, Arthur Gregory, Wilson Robinson, Willis Wharton, John Robert Souter and William Henry Souter, plus one name for WW2: Vernon William Kirk. Another name we have added to the list is George Herbert Gibson who was killed in WW1 and is mentioned on one of the gravestones.
We have obtained war records etc, including where each is either buried or commemorated overseas, but would welcome any further information including background, photos etc. The only photograph we have at the moment is of James Jackson, who is also included in the Hutton Magna memorial. We would also welcome any other information about anyone from the village who served in WW1.
Once we have gathered all the items we hope to provide a display in the church.

UK Participatory Event ‘LIGHTS OUT’
At 11pm on 4 August 1914 Britain declared war on Germany, ushering in one of the darkest periods in our history. As the moment approached, the British Foreign Secretary Sir Edward Grey made the famous remark: “The lamps are going out all over Europe; we shall not see them lit again in our life-time”.
In a dramatic UK-wide event LIGHTS OUT is an invitation to everyone to turn off their lights from 10pm to 11pm on 4th August, leaving on a single light or candle for this shared moment of reflection.
Part of 14-18 NOW, WW1 Centenary Art Commissions, LIGHTS OUT has invited artists to create large-scale, site-specific artworks at locations across the UK. A digital artwork will also be commissioned in response to LIGHTS OUT. LIGHTS OUT, working closely with the Royal British Legion, will be one of the largest participatory events of its kind ever seen in the UK, and will complement the candlelit vigil held at Westminster Abbey on 4th August.
