Remembrance Sunday

Lest we forget

This Sunday, 10 November, we mark that moment over 100 year ago when the guns finally fell silent and the war to end all wars came to an end.

We will be honouring those who left their homes, their families and their country and never came home. We will be honouring all those who paid the ultimate sacrifice then and in the many wars there have been since.

There will several Services of Remembrance across the parish and these can be seen below. Each service will have a two-minute silence at 11am.

In Flanders Field by John McCrae

In Flanders’ fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place: and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders’ fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe;
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high,
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders’ Fields.
