Every Poppy Counts

Every year the nation unites to make sure that no-one is forgotten and to remember and honour those who have sacrificed themselves to secure and protect our freedom.

Owing to the Covid-19 pandemic and in light of the risks posed; to protect the health and well-being of everyone, a decision was taken for individual church representatives to lay a commemorative wreath at the newly erected Crosspool Community Memorial of Remembrance in the Tapton Congregational Church garden. (You are invited to visit the memorial in your own time).

Recognising that this will be deeply disappointing for all who are unable to join the congregation in a Service of Remembrance, The Rev. Suzanne Nockels has prepared this short but poignant video of a service for us all to watch as we remember those whose lives have been touched by conflict.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them.
