Hello Everyone

 

'We Will Remember Them' is a clear theme this week during Remembrance week.

 

Last Sunday we held 'In Loving Memory Services' at Tingrith, Westoning, Chalgrave and Toddington churches to offer an opportunity to remember loved ones who have died and who we miss.  Harlington remembered John Bunyan in their evening service (their 'In Loving Memory service' was the preceding week). 

 

On Thursday, on Armistice Day at 11am on the 11th November there were special remembrance services at Toddington on the Green with the British Legion, and in the local schools, followed by the evening Remembrance Service at St George's Church which was  accompanied by the British Legion, and the Quintet Choir who sang some beautifully moving songs, led by Nicholas. 

 

This evening at 9pm the BBC will broadcast the Remembrance Service from the Royal Albert Hall.. which will pay tribute to the fallen and mark the centenary year of the Royal British Legion.. an organisation which has offered such important support to those affected by war.

 

Tomorrow our usual morning services will not quite follow their usual pattern as we gather to attend the various civic Remembrance ceremonies and join with our local communities to pay our respects.
