Armistice Day Service 2018

On Sunday the church was packed for the service to commemorate the end of World War I. It had been beautifully decorated – see our earlier post for pictures of the decorations. Shorne Scouts were present with their banners. The bells were rung before and after the service. The service was followed by a parade at the war memorial in the churchyard when the usual silence was observed and banners lowered between the last post and reveille. While people laid their wreaths and tributes at the memorial Dave Pullen played his bagpipes. After the parade many returned to the church for coffee and were invited to have a go at ringing a bell – and receive a certificate to show they had done so.
