On Sunday 11th November the village is invited to gather at the Village Church to remember those that have lost their lives in War and those that have served their Country in War and in Peace.
We will also especially remember those Soldiers and Airmen from Great Britain and the Commonwealth who are buried in our beautiful churchyard.
To commemorate this, the 100th Anniversary of the end of World War 1, a beautiful arch of over 600 knitted poppies has been prepared in the Church Porch, in addition the School will be helping to decorate the Church with poppies.
The Service will start at 10.45 am, however you are urged to arrive by 10.30 am to secure a seat.
We will be joined by CO 1 Military Working Dog Regiment RAVC, Lt Col Neil Lakin RE and a contingent from the Regiment together with our Uniformed Youth Groups and representatives of the Royal British Legion and Royal Air Forces Association. The Act of Remembrance will be led by Air Vice Marshal Nigel Sudborough CB OBE DL the President of RBL Rutland.
16 Villagers lost their lives in WW1 and their names are commemorated on the village war memorial, their stories do live on and you can view them here on the Rutland Remembers website.
If you are unable to join us on Sunday do please visit the Village Church to see the beautiful Poppy installation and maybe pause for a minute at our Commonwealth War Graves Commission Plot.
