At the going down of the Sun….

…….and in the morning we will remember them.
We will remember them.
This morning I attended the Civic Remembrance Day Parade from Bury Town Hall to the War Memorial and then the Remembrance Day Service at Bury Parish Church. I thought that the numbers attending seemed greater than in previous years.
In the afternoon I attended the Tottington Parade and Service. The Vicar of Tottington is Chaplain to the Bishop of Manchester and as the Bishop is Chaplain to the Royal British Legion millions across the Country would have seen Bishop Nigel conduct the Festival of Remembrance Service at the Royal Albert Hall last night. Tottington’s Vicar was in attendance at that Service and recounted at the service today how the Coldstream Guards are selling rubber wristbands to raise funds to support those injured in battle. As the Vicar said this is “scandalous” and in view of the sacrifices our armed forces are making throughout the World we as a nation will support them so that selling rubber bands is no longer required.
This evening I attended the special service of Remembrance at St. Anne’s, Tottington during which the names of all the men from Tottington who lost their lives in the two World Wars are read out. It is a most moving service.
We will remember them.
