Remembrance in Wokingham

 

We  marched from the Town Hall to All Saints for a 3pm service, led by the Rev Canon David Hodgson. We returned to the Town Hall to lay our wreaths at the War Memorial inside the building.

Around 220 names of those who died in the 1914-18 War were read out. It brought home the scale and brutality of the conflict, for a town with around 6000 people at the time.

I would like to thank the clergy of All Saints, Wokingham Royal British Legion and the representatives of the uniformed  services who joined in.
