In Remembrance (Harpley)

Remembrance Sunday is a day to commemorate the contribution of
military and civilian servicemen and women in the two World Wars and
later conflicts.

"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them."

You can see a short video based on Laurence Binyon's poem "For the Fallen" by clicking here.

We remember especially the men featured on our War Memorial & buried in our Churchyard:
