Armistice Day November 11th 2018

Armistice Day is commemorated every year on 11th November to mark the armistice signed between the Allies of World War I and Germany at Compiègne, France, for the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front of World War I, which took effect at eleven o’clock in the morning—the “eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month” of 1918.
This year, it coincides with Remembrance Sunday and there will be the usual service in St Mary Magdalene at 9.30am, and then the service at the War Memorial at 10.45am.
Our Vicar Lyn has asked that anyone in the village or surroundings who has either a family member currently serving in the forces, or one who died in either World War, and who would like them to be remembered, to contact her and she will read all the names out during the service. You can contact Lyn on 831203.
