A ROWAN FOR REMEMBRANCE

 

Pictures from the special ceremony on Remembrance Sunday to dedicate an Armistice tree at Chadlington Memorial Hall, to mark 100 years since the end of WW1. Prayers were led by Rev’d Mark Abrey, followed by a selection of war poems, read by Parish Council Chairman Howard Rowley, Cllr Tony Allan,David Payne and Sue Haffenden. Inside the hall was an exhibition depicting the stories of local men who were involved in the conflict.

The men’s stories now appear in a commemorative booklet , ‘In a Foreign Field’, which is on sale for £5 from Cafe de la Post and Chadlington Quality Foods, with proceeds going to the Royal British Legion. The booklet, researched and written by Debbie Betts and Sue Cox, and edited and compiled by Nina Morgan, contains a reminder that there are still more wartime stories to tell. Debbie Betts will continue to compile information about the Chadlington servicemen, and you are invited to add any information of your own. Contact details in the booklet.
