The annual Remembrance Service at Haddenham took place at St Mary's Church at 3pm on Sunday 8th November and was followed immediately afterwards by a Ceremony of Remembrance by the War Memorial at Church End.

In traditional fashion, the service and ceremony were planned under the auspices of Churches Together in Haddenham in co-ordination with The Royal British Legion.

Young people were involved in both the service and the ceremony and the address in the course of the service, so ably delivered by Francesca Flaxton, was perfectly pitched for all ages.

In the ceremony by the War Memorial the traditional sentences were said by a member of The Royal British Legion and the Last Post and Reveille were sounded by Haddenham resident Bob Ellisdon.

Wreaths were laid on behalf of The Royal British Legion, Buckinghamshire County Council, Aylesbury Vale District Council, Haddenham Parish Council, Members of the Rotary Club of Haddenham and District, Haddenham and Witchert Women's Institute, Members of Haddenham Lodge No 8944, the Scouts and the Guides. Remembrance posies were laid by members of the Cubs, each of the 3 Brownie units, the Beavers and the Rainbows. A wreath had also been laid on behalf of the Chearsley and Haddenham Under-fives Pre-School.

The ceremony by the War Memorial was opened in prayer by David Bolton on behalf of the local Catholic Church and closed with a blessing by the Rev'd Margot Hodson, Vicar of St Mary's Haddenham.

The local members of The Royal British Legion extend their sincere thanks to all those who participated.
