On Sunday morning, 14th November 2021, St Mary's Church supported by Churches Together in Haddenham hosted a Service of Remembrance at Church End.

Covid precautions meant that the entire service was conducted outside this year, by the war memorial. The timing was also adjusted, to offer a morning ceremony in contrast to the late afternoon wreath laying of previous years, and to correspond with the traditional 11:00am timing at a national level.

The service was led by Revd. Cassa Messervy, who became Rector of our local Benefice in Spring of this year and is now a familiar face to many.

Members of local churches provided the readings. The prayers of intersession were offered by young people and adults representing the uniformed and other organisations in the village.

Several hundred Haddenham residents were also present at the war memorial, to remember the fallen.

The bugle sounded.

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.

As ever, a very moving ceremony.
