This year’s 101st Remembrance Sunday held on November 10th, saw an ever-increasing number of residents gathering to honour our fallen. Proceedings started with Wolverton Town Band playing and the Army Cadets and Masons parading around The Square. The Last Post sounded which was followed by the Wolverton Works’ siren that marked the beginning of the two-minute silence. The siren then sounded again to mark the end of the silence which was followed by the ReveilleProceedings continued with poetry, prayers and reciting’s delivered by members of our community and heads of our churchesThe crowd brought a massive feeling of respect and deliverance which was enhanced by the choir from Wolverton Churches Together 

The congregation welcomed the support from New Bradwell British Legion, who allowed their Standard Bearer to take part in our service. We would like to thank our volunteers and generous public who managed to collect and donate over £1000 for the Royal British Legion. Refreshments were provided by Councillor Paul Fussell and volunteers from Foundation House for a donation which added to the collection for the Royal British Legion. The Masonic Lodge Bar was also open to the public for refreshments of a stronger nature.
