Remembrance Day

by Susie Sharkey


On Remembrance Sunday we gather outside our Church at 10.30am to lay a wreath at the war memorial. Traditionally, the oldest member of our congregation who served in World War 2, Mrs Kerr, laid the wreath during the service. She sadly passed away earlier this year and the baton has now been passed to a younger member of our congregation, Matthew Sharkey who served in the Parachute Regiment in both Iraq and Afghanistan. During his active service he saw a number of his comrades pay the ultimate price and it was a particularly poignant moment as he laid the wreath and remembered his own friends.

We had a great church picnic after our Sunday morning service on 26 June. The children presented home baking for sale in aid of Mary's Meals. We all had a super time and a big thank you to our organisers of this great event.
