A service was held at the war memorial in the churchyard of St Peter's church on Sunday 3 August to commemorate the centenary of the start of the First World War.
These are the words of introduction:
'We have gathered around this memorial today to remember all those from this community who were caught up in the courageous but tragic events of the First World War. We remember those who were killed in action, or by disease, the bereaved, the lost, the families which were shattered, the wounded, maimed and injured, those who held in silence unspeakable memories of warfare.'
There was a reading of names of the roll of honour from the village hall
of those who served in the war, not only those who gave their lives in the fighting.
At the end of the service, those attending were invited to view a display of memorabilia in the church
