The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
David Thomson: November 2019
Tattenhall commemorated the Remembrance Sunday
There was an excellent attendance for both the Remembrance Sunday service in St. Alban's Church and at the War Memorial ceremony of laying wreaths and marking the national 2 minute silence at 11am. There was standing room only in the Church, where we remembered those from our community who lost their lives in the two World Wars.
All the local Uniformed Groups were present and it was most encouraging to see so many young people, and their Leaders, on parade through the village, with their flags and banners. The number of local people present at the War Memorial seems to increase every year, and all age groups at that. On a splendid crisp, sunny morning, it was an impressive sight. As usual, a group of cyclists were there and laid their crosses once the crowds moved away from the War Memorial.
Refreshments were served afterwards in the Barbour Institute, served by Members of our Parish Council. Many people took the chance to warm up, meeting friends and villagers on this important day in the village calendar.
