Clanfield Remembrance Service raises £522.75 for Poppy Appeal

The Remembrance Service in Clanfield took place on Sunday 11th November at Clanfield Memorial Hall, and the sun was shining for the event after heavy rain in the days leading up to it.

Revd. Anne Gothard of St James Church led the service and remarked on how poignant and moving the service was, especially as a veteran wife herself. There was a fantastic turnout for this years event, with over 300 people attending including the Scouts and Beavers, who looked incredibly smart in their uniforms.

Serving personnel from The British Army, Royal Navy and The Royal Marines were also in attendance. Children from Clanfield Junior School and Petersgate Infant School also came to the service and lay a wreath.

The service took donations and a huge £522.75 was raised, all of which will be donated to The Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.
