“WE WILL REMEMBER THEM…”

THE MAIN BODY OF THE CHAPEL
During the weekend of the 12th – 14th May 2000 the Falkland Island Memorial Chapel Flower Guild held a Flower Festival for the benefit of the contributors to the Chapel appeal and the Kneeler makers. Please click here for a tour of the Main Body of the Chapel. The Flower Guild mounted another Festival in 2007 – to mark the 25th Anniversary of the Falklands War.
On either side of the main body of the Chapel, visitors can enter matching Memorial and Education Rooms – believed to be unique in concept. The Memorial Room – which was designed as a ‘haven of peace’ for bereaved families and friends – houses a computer featuring a ‘Garden of Remembrance’ web site operated by the South Atlantic Medal Association (SAMA) where they can access details of their lost loved ones. Please visit the SAMA82 web site if you wish to contribute or add to information already gathered. Murals in this room depict the ‘Falkland Islands at peace’and further wall panels were painted and donated by war artist, Linda Kitson. By contrast, the Education Room, catalogues the history of the Falklands War through an interactive and wall mounted ‘time line’, and offers seating for visiting groups who can watch the presentation on a wide screen – of particular interest to students of history, geography & economics.

More intimate services are held within the St Nicholas side chapel, on the left of the chancel, which contains some of the memorabilia owned by the College. Saint Nicholas is the patron saint of children and sailors. [Lower right]
