No greater love

Hertfordshire Life - - CONTENTS -

There can be few more emo­tive words than, ‘There is no greater love than this, that some­one should lay down their life for their friends’.

In this in­stance they were spo­ken by the Rev Chris Briggs, as the in­tro­duc­tion to Hai­ley­bury’s pa­rade ser­vice to mark the cen­te­nary of the sign­ing of the Ar­mistice. Start­ing at this ser­vice and con­tin­u­ing un­til Ar­mistice Day, the names of the 740 for­mer Hai­ley­bury pupils and staff who died in the First World War will be re­cited.

The Last Post and Reveille were per­formed beau­ti­fully by lower school pupil, Ruby Spavin. It was a very mov­ing day.

Mandy Davies, par­ent of Hai­ley­bury pupil, Goffs Oak
