The annual Remembrance Parade took place on Sunday November 10. It proved to be as poignant as ever – if not more so! The parade itself seemed to be longer than last year and more people were there at the wayside to remember.
Rev David Gibson led the remembering at the memorial. He told how it is more difficult to remember, and have empathy with, those who gave their lives as we did not personally know those named on the memorial plaque. Despite that we should continue to remember.
Thank you to all who took part – especially the bugle player who was very good. We shall be there next year to show our respect as we celebrate the 75th anniversary of the ending of the Second World War in Europe.
They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old. Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them.
