On Sunday afternoon 10th November, Churches Together in Haddenham hosted a Service of Remembrance in St Mary's Parish Church.

The commemoration service was led by Revd. Tricia Mander and a poignant address was delivered by the Ven. Gordon Kuhrt.

Members of local churches provided the readings and prayers of intersession were led by local residents and representatives of uniformed services.

After the church service, the congregation moved outside to join an awaiting group of Haddenham residents at the war memorial, where the traditional last post and wreath laying ceremony was conducted.

"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them."

The bugle sounded.

It was a moving and solemn tribute.
