On a sunny Remembrance Sunday there was a big turnout at the war memorial to remember those who had given their lives in the two world wars. After the 2-minute silence wreaths were laid followed by a united service in the chapel. The service was led by Mr Alex Sheffield and Rev Patricia Murley with Mrs Nora Hitchens the organist. Banners were presented by the Rainbows, the Brownies and the Guides.  Trevelyan read from Micah ch.4 v1-5 and Alex read from Philippians ch.4 v4-9 Patricia then spoke about the Great War giving us glimpses of the conditions and memories of those who served their country. Alex then prayed a blessing for the Shoeboxes which will begin their journey to children in needy and war-torn countries to bring joy and love to those who may not have another Christmas present. The Rainbows and Brownies then led the congregation in a prayer they had learned.  Tea and coffee followed the service.
