Lifestyle Magazine – ‘Silhouette Soldiers’ by John Durkin

‘Lest we Forget’

In Commemoration of 100 years since the end of The Great War of 1914 – 1918 we have chosen a photo of one of Ripon’s ‘Silhouette Soldiers’ taken by Ripon teenager John Durkin for our front cover image.

#RiponRemembers has been a true community project with Community Poppy Project coordinators Stuart Martin and Hazel Barker leading the way.  The support from Ripon residents, extended families, friends and visitors has been amazing to see with approximately 50,000 poppies being knitted and displayed across the Ripon area.  The Remembrance week finishes with the lighting up of Ripon Cathedral – https://www.harrogateadvertiser.co.uk/news/remembrance-ripon-unveils-best-light-show-in-the-uk-1-9435682 and the Armistice Day Parade – https://www.harrogateadvertiser.co.uk/news/armistice-day-in-ripon-full-timings-and-everything-you-need-to-know-1-9432612

Silhouette Soldiers, placed in meaningful locations in both Ripon and Sharow have also helped to bring about thoughtful discussion – http://stjohnssharow.org.uk/silhouette-soldiers/.  The silhouettes are also within the  “Fields of Mud” an art installation by Dan Metcalfe inside Ripon Cathedral – https://www.harrogate-news.co.uk/2018/11/10/timelapse-video-of-fields-of-mud-seeds-of-hope-at-ripon-cathedral/

The Chairman of Ripon Royal British Legion, Jeet Bahadur Sahi, was presented with a cheque from North Stainley Arts Society following their two commemorative First World War performances.  The presented funds were donated to be used for the Ripon Royal British Legion’s new garden of Remembrance project.  The garden can be found facing the north side of Ripon Cathedral – https://www.ripongazette.co.uk/news/funding-boost-for-ripon-royal-british-legion-as-city-marks-centenary-year-1-9420752

Lifestyle Magazine – Ripon Canal Basin by Alan Kaemena

We were very lucky to receive a more industrial shot of Ripon taken by Alan Kaemena for our Lifestyle Magazine front cover.  Alan has been taking photos for over 40 years and usually prefers to take photos containing people.  The reflections on the canal water caught his eye one morning and that is how this photo made its way into his camera.
