Remembrance Day

I have attended three Remembrance Day services today. This morning I attended the Civic Service of Remembrance at Bury Parish Church where I laid a wreath at the town’s war memorial.

In the afternoon I attended the Tottington Parade and Service of Remembrance and again laid a wreath at the War memorial.

This evening I attended a special service of Evening Prayer, Remembrance and Roll Call at St. Anne’s which is an especially moving service when the names of those from the Parish who have lost their lives in conflict are individually read out and the bell is tolled for each one.

They gave their lives for our freedom. We must remember them.
