Remembrance Sunday

This year marked 100 years since the Armistice which ended the First World War, and the occasion was marked by a service in the church followed by prayers, the reading of the names of the dead and a hymn at the War Memorial outside the Village Hall, before the two minutes silence at 11.00.
The weather which had been cold and damp at the start of the morning cleared and by 11.00 the sun had come out and shone warmly on the congregation.
Coffee and cake were served in the Village Hall and people were able to admire the display of memorabilia from both World Wars and later which Dave Froggatt had laid out in the hall.
At 12.30 bells in churches all over the country were rung to remember the end of the conflict and parishioners were invited to come to St Marys to try heir hands at campanology under the guidance of Peter, Betty and Michael.
