Remembrance Sunday: what a lovely and poignant service for Remembrance Sunday which was so well attended on the village green. The service was enhanced by the beautiful playing of the Last Post and the Reveille by Nigel Robertshaw. The wreath was laid by James Herbert who had served with the Gurkhas. We wish to thank all motorists who complied with the request not to pass during the open air part of the service. A substantial congregation entered the parish church for the continuation of the Remembrance service which enabled a donation of £250 to be sent to The Royal British Legion.
