Although not the brightest of November mornings the village came out in great numbers and supported the Remembrance Procession.
We were delighted to have ex-servicemen who took their rightful place at the head of the procession for the Rainbows, Beavers, Brownies, Cubs, Guides, Scouts, Rangers and Explorers to follow and Enderby Band played beautifully as they do each year.
The younger members of the Guiding & Scouting groups went into the United Reformed Church with many family members where they used the theme ‘messages’. In their meetings they had talked about the theme and did activities to display. These included telegrams, semaphore, ciphers and even carrier pigeons. At the Parish Church the names are read from the war memorial. Both Churches had a bugler – Isabelle and Claire – who played The Last Post and The Reveille.
This event is not possible without a lot of volunteers on the day, thanks to all the super marshals that make it safe and the leaders of the uniformed groups that give their time. A special thanks to Lydia, Matt and Tim for all they do within the traffic management area prior to, during, and after the event.
Thanks again to the villagers who lined the route and supported the Remembrance Procession – we will Remember them.
