We will never forget

Sunday 12th November 2017

We will never forget

Parade moving along the High Street towards Memorial Garden

Once again Hampton Wick turned out in strength to show respect and gratitude to those who have fallen, have been injured or who continue to serve in our Armed Forces.

The local sea cadets marched behind a piper at the head of the procession down the High Street to the Memorial Garden.

Reverend Jerry Field from [St John’s](https://stjohnshamptonwick.org/) then led the Service of Remembrance, with a reading by the minister from [Hampton Wick Baptists](http://www.hamptonwickbaptists.co.uk/). The service included a moving and thought provoking address from the vicar on the theme of Freedom and Responsbility. We sang “Amazing Grace” and “I Vow to Thee My Country” and the National Anthem.

Before the final blessing, Rev Jerry paid tribute to Peter who had played the bagpipes on Remembrance Sunday for many years but who died earlier in the year. A prayer was said while we remembered his service.
