The Rocking Dog “Remember Me” Project

I am currently researching all the WW1 names on the Whiteshill Common (Hambrook) War Memorial in time for the WW1 armistice centenary. I have visited 45 graves/memorials of the 53 names listed. These include laying poppies for 38 men in 32 cemeteries/memorials in France and Belgium. Various plans are afoot to remember these brave men. On July 14th Rocking Dog was to be found in the marquee at Frenchay Flower Show with an interpretation of a WW1 Flower Show table. Many came to taste the rather dry WW1 recipe Trench Cake and unusual Parsnip Marmalade!

The Armistice beckons, please come and keep me company this Sunday. Meeting at the Whiteshill Memorial from about 10.45am, respecting the 2 minute silence and then some pipes “Now the Battle’s O’er”. Tea & homemade cake at the Rocking Dog kennel, Donations welcomed for refreshments, monies going to archiving my project for posterity. WE WILL REMEMBER THEM.
I have set up an Instagram account for my Remember Me Project lizferguson8


There is indeed a Rocking Dog kennel in Umbria which sleeps four and enjoys beautiful views and a lovely pool. Contact Liz, lizferg@btinternet.com for further information and links.

Watch this space for exciting Rocking Dog events

Thank you to everyone who supported Rocking Dog events in 2017 especially Christmas in February! Over £700 was raised for Young Carer’s “Christmas in a Box” It meant that 10 families enjoyed a food filled Christmas. Thank you to Sainsbury’s, Filton for festive goodies and to Ikea for the gingerbread houses.

Fundraising for “Christmas in a Box” 2018 has already begun. A raffle at the Rockpipes Burn’s Night raised £341. Many thanks to all who bought tickets.
