Over 200 people attended the Remembrance service this year. All the uniformed organisations were represented and three serving soldiers were also in attendance. As always, the Act of Remembrance at the War Memorial was particularly poignant for everyone.

Thank you to Angela Gatfield for permission to publish her photograph (above).

2nd Hoo Brownies painted beautiful Remembrance stones to place around the war memorial at the service on Sunday. These have been collected up and placed inside the church. They will be on view in the church for a couple of weeks. Well done Brownies and thanks to Chris Comfort for the photos below:
