Fazeley is ready for Armistice Day with a great poppy display produced by the Fazeley and Mile Oak WI.
Sunday 11th November will mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War 1 and a fantastic display of poppies around Fazeley’s town square and war memorial has been produced by the Fazeley and Mile Oak WI.
Cllr Debbie James, Mayor of Fazeley, said, “I am very grateful for the excellent work of the ladies of the Fazeley and Mile Oak WI to produce this wonderful display. I had the pleasure of leading Fazeley at the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of World War 1 four years ago and I am proud and humbled to be again leading the town on this momentous occasion.”
The memorial service, led by Revd Jonathan Iddon, will start at Fazeley’s War Memorial at 10:45 with the laying of wreaths, the reading of the names of the fallen from both World War 1 and 2 and a 2 minutes silence. There will then be a procession from the War Memorial to St Paul’s Church where the service will continue and include a reading from the Mayor of Fazeley.
