Books of Remembrance Update
Due to Covid restrictions, the Book of Remembrance Room is currently closed.
It has not been possible to re-open it due to ongoing restrictions and the confined nature of this room. We have made alternative arrangements so that the books can be viewed again. They are now displayed in the three bay windows at the front of the main building, including the Baby Book of Remembrance.

Service of Remembrance
Our Services of Remembrance and Open Days usually take place on the last Sunday in June. In 2021 this would have been 27 June. Due to the situation with Covid it will not take place this year. We hope that by 2022 we will be able to welcome you to Penmount once again. In previous years our Service or Rembrance has always been a joyful occasion.
Our Carol Services usually take place on the second Thursday evening in December. In 2021 this will hopefully be on 9 December. Due to Covid it is not possible to confirm at this time. Nearer the time we will be able to make a decision on whether it will be possible to hold the service. We will update this page when we have further details.
