Remembrance 2014

9 November 2014

DSC02369The inaugural Bradley Stoke Remembrance Commemoration was held on the 9th November 2014.

Parade Marshall Charles Brickley took charge of a parade of Scouts, Guides, Beavers, Brownies, Rainbows & Cubs from 1st Bradley Stoke, 1st Little Stoke, and 2nd Stoke Lodge as well as 37 Sqn ATC and Patchway Detachment Army Cadet Force.

The parade marched from the Jubilee Centre to the Town Centre where they joined over 200 people who had come to pay tribute to those in our Armed Forces and those who support them who have lost their live due to conflict.

Katherine Robinson (Beaver Scout Leader 1st Bradley Stoke) led the ceremony with an explanation of Remembrance traditions being given by children from the groups attending.  Emily (Scout) read out a poem she had written about Remembrance and Emma (Brownie) read out a moving letter from a relative who served during WW1.

Rev Paul Hinkley led everyone in the two minutes silence after which wreaths were laid at the War Memorial.  The Filton Concert Brass Band sounded the Last Post and provided the rest of the music that accompanied the ceremony.

Thank you to everyone who supported this Remembrance Ceremony.

To the Organisers of the Bradley Stoke Remembrance Parade and Ceremony,

I attended the above event on Sunday last and wish to place on record my thanks to all concerned for a very moving and well organised Parade and Ceremony.   The young lady who retold of the letter from her Great Great Uncle read with feeling and moved me and many a person close to me, all the participants were superb and under the efficient leadership of Katherine Robinson the whole event was a credit to you all, thank you and well done.

Please pass on my thoughts and thanks to all concerned.

Many Regards

Peter


Hello 

I thought I would just say how well I thought everything went on Sunday at the Willbrook Centre in Bradley Stoke. I am sure there must have been some apprehension being the first memorial service.  I have played at quite a few memorial services over the years. I thought the organisation and the service itself was wonderful. The lady who led the proceedings was extremely confident and the children were a very special addition to the proceedings. Well done to everyone involved. It was a privilege to be part of the ceremony.

Take Care

John
