Remembrance Sunday 2020

PoppyTo show that the village is together in remembering the fallen, even though we are dispersed, we are asking everyone to either take a photo of their visit to the war memorial or to make their own poppy (draw, colour or collage) and share a picture of this with so that we can build a collage on this website and share our acts of remembrance at this difficult time. Some of these pictures have now been added to the homepage gallery but there is still time to add yours
