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.”
