Every November on Remembrance Sunday,
our village remembers at the church Lych-
Passing cars slow down, a standard bearer
from the Royal British legion attends,
villagers and relatives of those from the
village who died, gather for a short
ceremony to mark their sacrifice.
The names of those men are read, followed
by two minutes’ silence.
The village hall will be open beforehand and
afterwards when coffee, tea and biscuits will
be served for all attending. There will also
be a small exhibit about our village history.

who served their country in two world wars,
