A Rowan for Remembrance

After months of planning by Chadlington Parish Council, a special Armistice tree–a rowan– has been planted at the village’s Memorial Hall.

The dedication ceremony, included prayers led by the Reverend Mark Abrey and a selection of readings of WW1 poetry by Parish Council Chairman Howard Rowley, Cllr Tony Allan, David Payne and Sue Haffenden.

The well attended event took place in bright sunshine on Remembrance Sunday, one of many ceremonies across the UK marking 100 years since the end of the Great War. Inside the hall was an exhibition about the Chadlington soldiers involved in the conflict.
