Sunday 11th November was a special date across the Country – it marked 100 years since the end of the 1st World War. By no means was this an ordinary Remembrance Parade, but a significant one. I was invited to cover the processions at Kedington, where many Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and many more turned out to remember.
It was a very moving day – a fantastic parade from the Barnardiston Arms, through the village and finally coming into the church. Those in the parade were led by a historic Jeep, decorated with Poppies. Outside the church, everyone gathered around the memorial, for what was an emotional service. Wreaths were laid to rest on the memorial, and crosses planted, with each one representing a soldier who passed away from the surrounding areas. The last post sounded, followed by a perfectly held 2 minutes silence.
Afterwards, a full service was held inside the church, and was a good way to wrap up a fantastic Remembrance Parade.
