There was a large congregation at St John's, Chelford for the Remembrance Service. Members of all the Scouting groups were represented as well as Cheshire East Council, Chelford Parish Council and many young families from the village.
On a bright sunny morning, the commemoration was led by Revd Barry Roberts, the congregation processing from the church to the war memorial during the singing of "God, Our Help In Ages Past".
The last post was sounded as the church bell tolled eleven and the standards were lowered. The minute's silence followed, after which the names of the fallen from the Chelford area were read out. The first of these was Richard Boon, whose story can be read here.
One can only imagine the effect on the small community of such losses. Revd Roberts reflected on wars past and present and their lasting effects.
