Village Honours War Dead

More than fifty people were at the village war memorial yesterday morning (11th November) for the annual Remembrance Day commemoration.

The service was taken by the Rev David Haylett.  A wreath was laid by the chairman of the parish council Steve Brown, and Sasha Canter played the last post on the cornet.

Wreaths were also laid by Edith Wilson, aged nine, on behalf of the Brownies and Bertrice Feather, aged six, for the village Rainbows.  As it was not a school day, the usual attendance of children from the primary school did not take place.

Fourteen men from Long Wittenham gave their lives in the First World War.
