St Mary’s Church will be publishing a book of local poems by local people on the subject of war and peace, to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I next year. We are inviting people from Portchester (or with a Portchester connection) to submit poems which they have written. As well as remembering the war (and the lessons from it) we also want poems about peace. Please email them to the Parish Office stmaryoffice@btconnect.com or drop them in by the end of December.
