On reading the results of the Parish Appraisal I was quite surprised to read that
someone had made the comment “Very disappointed the village did nothing to
support the 100 year armistice event.” In fact there was a display in the church
from the 27th October to 11th November with information about the men named
on the Memorial and also men from the village who served but returned. There
was also a Remembrance Service at the church on Sunday 11th November when
the stories of the men from the village who gave their lives were read out. All of
which was advertised in The Waylander.
I am now researching those who served in the Second World War and also life in
the village during the war years. If anyone has any information regarding this I
would be very pleased to hear from them.
