Remembrance Sunday and 100th Anniversary of the End of World War 1


The annual Remembrance Day wreath laying took place on 11th November at the Wayside Cross.  To mark the 100th Anniversary of WW1, the names of relatives of current Chicheley residents who lost their lives on active service were also read out, in addition to the names of the men of Chicheley recorded on the memorial and in the church.

We appreciate the respect shown by those drivers on the A422 who slowed down when they say the service in progress. 

During the service in the church, candles were lit by the memorial plaque.

 

On the afternoon of Saturday 10th November, there was an exhibition of memorabilia relating to Chicheley during WW1 and its residents who fought and died in the service of their country.
