The annual Remembrance Service was held at the War Memorial in All Saints' Churchyard on Wednesday 4th November to enable us to be together before the 2nd lockdown began.

It was a gloriously sunny day and all protocols were observed by those who attended i.e. masks and social distancing. The Rector led the proceedings for the shortened service but all the usual formalities were included namely:- the reading of the names on the Memorial from WW1 and WW2; the Exhorta-tion; the Last Post; two minutes silence; the Kohima Epitaph; the laying of wreaths on the Memorial and the posy on the war grave of Alroy Ashley. The service was concluded with the National Anthem.

We would like to thank Jez and Lucy Empson for allowing us to put our annu-al display in the Boot Shop window to commemorate this important time.

Also, thanks to you who have contributed to our scaled down Poppy Appeal this year. We do not have any figures at the time of writing as regulations in currently place are not allowing us to count the cans! But as soon as this is done the figures will be published on the RBL noticeboard outside of Buglers

Remembering the Wrington Fallen 1914 -1918

The late Peter Myers published a booklet about the fifteen First World War fatal casualties recorded on the Wrington war memorial, to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the War's start, and pay tribute to the fallen. It is on sale in Amors, Buglers and the Golden Lion.

All profits will go to the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.
