    Reblogged this on My Poetry Library and commented:
    This is a short film of our local poet, Ian McMillan, the Bard of Barnsley, doing great and valuable work with local school children in remembering the lost of the world wars. This came about after the arrival of a new Minister at Christchurch Stocksbridge, who noticed how little anyone new about the fifty names on the church’s memorial plaques. So, at the invitation of the Reverand Ian Lucraft, Ian McMillan, a local poet who happens to be very well known nationally, agreed to run music and poetry workshops at local schools as well as writing this poem.

    We, that is the Waldershelf Singers, sang our first major Christmas concert at Christchurch last night, to a packed house; our guests were, as always, the choir of Deepcar St John’s Junior School, who feature in this film. Enjoy.

    Thanks to The Reverend Ian Lucraft for pointing me to this delightful and very poignant poem by the especially talented Bard of Barnsley. Thanks also to Christchurch for allowing us to host our first Christmas concert once again at what is evidently a very attractive venue, a vibrant community of good people at which not only the life of the church can be found but also of the community in good work, music and … poetry. Hooray.

    John, this is quite wonderful. Thank you for sharing it with me. A worthy project indeed.

    FYI: I hardly go on twitter. Thank goodness this came through in email.

    I will post this on the next BARDO NEWS.

    Thanks for this and two more poems.

    Many blessings,
