REMEMBERING THE FALLEN,
Across the county people have been taking time to reflect on those who gave their lives
ALL of the schools in Beaconsfield marked Armistice Day with a ceremony at the town’s war memorial.
Representatives from every school in the town went along to the war memorial in Windsor End on Wednesday, November 11 for the service, which included a two minute silence at 11am.
Wreaths were laid at the memorial, and two youngsters played the Last Post and Reveille to mark the occasion.
Reverend Jeremy Brooks conducted the service, which followed on from the event held at the memorial on Remembrance Sunday, which was attended by hundreds of people and community organisations from around the town.
MORE than 200 people gathered to mark Remembrance Sunday in Chalfont St Giles.
Two services were performed at the Parish Church, High Street, with Vice Admiral Alan Richards CB speaking at the first one at 10am. A second service was held at 11.30am for members of the uniformed organisations.
Attendee Kevin Searle, of London Road, said: “It was very well attended. In fact the numbers seem to increase each year.
“It just seems to have more meaning for people. It was a very nice service and very well taken by Ian Brown, the rector.
He added: “It was an excellent turn out and an excellent service, and lots of people commented on how good it was having a member of the armed forces there.”
