MORCOTT REMEMBRANCE

The service in Morcott was led by the Churchwardens, with a larger than usual attendance on this special day. The names of the Fallen from both World Wars was read by John Williams, and the Last Post played by Eric Hazelwood. This year, a wreath was placed beneath the Roll of Honour, which named all those who served in the Great War, not only those who died but those who survived. The commemorative Horseshoe was placed on the War Memorial at the far end of the High Street and will now find a permanent home in St Mary’s Church.

On the day when we remember the visit of the three kings to Bethlehem to find the baby Jesus, we have some pictures of the Duddington crib. This crib was originally made for the disabled children, when they had a home at Tixover Manor.
