Wollaston Parish Council
Remembrance Day 10th November 2013
On a crisp, cloudless late autumn day some 300 residents of Wollaston gathered at the Doc Shop car park in High Street at around 10.20 am. The uniformed organisations, Girls’ Brigade, Guides and Scouts were well represented and led the parade to the War Memorial in the village cemetery, flags flying.
A short service was conducted this year by Marie Armitage of the Methodist Church and Michael Hogg of the Baptist Church; Don Loake read the Exaltation once more and the Last Post, Reveille and the National Anthem were played by the buglers and band of the Salvation Army. The formal proceedings concluded with the ringing of the bells of St. Mary’s parish church.
There was a retiring bucket collection split between the Royal British Legion and the British Limbless Ex Service Men’s Association (BLESMA) which raised a total of £86.50. Many of the attendees finally moved off to avail themselves of hot soup kindly provided by 2nd Wollaston Scout Group or to St Mary’s Church for light refreshments.
