There was a large congregation for the Remembrance Service at St John's last Sunday.
As usual, all the uniformed groups were well represented and after the main service, everyone processed outside for the playing of the Last Post, wreath laying and the minute's silence.
It is always poignant when the names of those who did not return from the first and second World Wars are read out. At the time, the total population of Chelford, Lower Withington, Marthall, Ollerton and Little Warford was probably fewer than 1000 and even after all this time, one can only speculate on the effect of those conflicts on our small communities.
Thank you to Rev Gerri Tetzlaff for a sensitive and thought-provoking sermon which brought home to us the human cost of all conflicts.
Thanks also to Dr Roycroft and his daughter, Helen for the picture.
