Remembrance Service 2013

 

Hethersett Parish Church was once again full for the 2013 Remembrance Sunday Service which was preceded by an act of remembrance around the war memorial with village stalwart Duncan Pigg reading out the names of those who had died during the two World Wars and also the Cyprus Campaign of the 1950s. This was followed by a minute’s silence, the last post and the reveille.

The Guides, Scouts, Brownies, Beavers and Cubs were all represented and laid wreaths on the war memorial. Wreaths were also laid by Hethersett Parish Council chairman Fred Watkins and representatives from local organisations including Hethersett Pensioners’ Association, the Roman Catholic community, Hethersett Parish Church, Hethersett Methodist Church and Hethersett Old Hall School.

Inside the church, the service of remembrance was led by The Rev Christopher Mallett who spoke on the themes of war, hatred, peace and love. Bible readings were given by churchwarden Rick Palmer and Fred Watkins and Margaret Ford, representing Hethersett Methodist Church, led the prayers of intercession.

At the conclusion of the service the church choir sang "They Shall Not Grow Old" to a musical setting by Douglas Guest of the war poem by Laurence Binyon.
