Remembrance Day in Loddon

Tomorrow thousands of people across the country will gather to remember the sacrifices of a huge number of men and women who have fought in times of war, both past and present. Loddon will host its traditional Armistice Parade, beginning from The White Horse corner at Chedgrave at 10.15am and, led by a lone piper, making its way along the high street to Church Plain. Following the laying of the wreaths at the war memorial and the reading of the names of the fallen there will be a service in Holy Trinity Church at 10.55am.

Remembrance services will also take place at All Saints Church in Chedgrave and at St Margaret’s Church in Hales at 3pm.

As always many people will attend as the local area pays its respects and the parade through Loddon is sure to be an impressive and touching sight as always.

I was hoping to go along to show my respects and celebrate the fantastic effort our area puts into remembering those that have fallen. However it is with enormous regret that I cannot make it as I have work commitments. Despite this, the occasion is such a proud local event that I feel it should not go unrecognized, and so I ask for your help. If anyone who watches or takes part in the parade takes any photos or videos I would be hugely grateful if you could send The Loddon Eye a few to put on the site. Such a powerful act of remembrance deserves to be acknowledged and recorded and it seems fitting to create a gallery of images that document the day from the varied perspective of the local community.

Occasions like these show just how powerful and cohesive a community can be, and serves as a mark of real respect to all those we are remembering.
