Remembrance Sunday Service 10.53am St Andrew's Church Sunday 10th November 2019

All are welcome to a United Service of Remembrance, when the congregation of St Andrew's join with that of the United Reform Church. After the 10.53am service there will be a ceremony at the War Memorial (around noon).

This year marks the centenary of Remembrance, the annual tradition that first took place in 1919 to pay tribute to those men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice during what was then known as 'The Great War'.

The Memorial Cross, erected at 'The Bell Corner' was dedicated at a moving service on 7th November 1920 attended by the whole village. The service ended with 'The Last Post' and the singing of the National Anthem.

Nearly 100 years after that dedication and unveiling of the War Memorial, wreaths will be laid once again in memory of the villagers who were killed in both World wars.

You can listen to the moment the guns stopped in 1918 by played the recorded file.
