On Sunday 3rd August, there was a thoughtful and memorable service in our parish church at 7pm led by Ian Woodward, our vicar and by Pastor Jim Morris.
The Church was full to capacity and the service included hymns and readings including a number of First World War poems on the themes of reconciliation and peace.
The service ended with a procession to our War Memorial, led by children and young people from all sections of the parish carrying 28 candles in remembrance of our 28 war dead.
The candles were placed around the memorial and a Piper played from the Church Tower. 'Anthem for Doomed Youth', was read out and as the sun set in a clear blue sky, we all dispersed.
A beautiful Service marking the lights going out across Europe.
