What might it mean to “be Northstowe” – a Remembrance Day reflection

Remembrance Day in a new town is an interesting thing. None of us have ancestors or roots here. And yet we all come with a story and a heritage. Those stories, and what we do with them, will shape us. This week, in the Primary School, Secondary School, and, on Sunday, outside by our newly named Bug Hunters' Water, Northstowe is coming together to remember the horrors of war and the heroism of individuals through story and through silence, so that these may become real in the present and influence and inspire us to work for reconciliation, peace and justice in the future
