Trumpeter Tom Jose played the Last Post and Rouse and wreaths were laid by Sheila Madge and Marion Thomas whose fathers were killed in WW2. Also, by St David’s School, The W.I., The Brownies, The Community Council and The Village Hall Association, At the church service the 23 men... who served in WW1 and returned safely were remembered. Pupils of St David's School made poppies each bearing a name of these men and the 4 from WW2 who were killed. They also wrote prayers and poems. Sheila Madge provided photographs and memorabilia of her Father and the Brownies sang a thankful song. Edward Lewis representing the Community Council read about the wars and a bible reading was read by Pamela Haines.
