Our Parish Church is dedicated to St. Andrew, and this WebSite tells you more about it..
Our Church before Remembrance Day.
Each cross bears a name from our War Memorial.
At the going down of the Sun, and in the morning,
we will remember them.
Mrs Graham was Head techer of our Village School for many years.
I have just learned that her husband,
Arthur Ernest Graham,
although not killed in the First War,
was just as much a "casualty" - perhaps more so,
as he died in 1929,
from the after effects of being gassed during the war.
A bullet is instantaneous.
He and his family suffered for over eleven years.
And, generally speaking,
there are at least as many wounded as there are killed.
