On Sunday morning, 11th November 2018, Churches Together in Haddenham hosted a Service of Remembrance in a packed St Mary's Parish Church, on the centenary of the WW1 Armistice.
The 100 year commemoration service was led by Revd. Margot Hodson and the address was delivered by Revd. Nadine Rose.
Members of local churches provided the readings. The prayers of intersession were led by Gill Bedding and children representing each of the uniformed organisations in the village.
A number of children from Haddenham St Mary's CE School recited the 'Poppy Poem'.
After the church service, the congregation moved outside to join several hundred Haddenham residents at the war memorial, where the traditional last post and wreath laying ceremony was conducted.
The bugle sounded at precisely 11.00am on the 11th day of the 11th month. It was a moving and solemn tribute.
