Here is this year's Remembrance Day Tribute from the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.

The painted bottles are made to resemble headstones in War Grave cemeteries and each one has a painted tribute on it.  They are displayed on the grass in front of the church.

Hilary, our minister, held a short dedication service on Friday. They are illuminated by battery tea lights.  The effect is very atmospheric and they will be lit again tomorrow evening, 12th November.
