Dedication of Thrapston War Memorial
9th November 2014Today we cancelled our morning service to attend the dedication of the new war memorial.
Joining with other members of the Thrapston community we attended the British Legion ceremony to celebrate the 100 years anniversary of the start of World War 1, and dedicate the new Thrapston war memorial.
The ceremony included readings of the winners of the poetry competion, readings of famous poems from each of the four years of the war, and the blessing of the memorial by Rev. Charles Jefferson from St James's.

"They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old,
Age shall not weary them nor the years condemn,
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We shall remember them"
