Remembrance Service 2013

Sunday 10 November 2013 was a beautifull sunny day in Tutbury. Pictured above is the annual remembrance parade making its way through Tutbury Church yard.

Following the laying of wreaths at Tutbury War Memorial, the church service was led by Venerable John Hall. The service included Hymms, a reading from Cllr Liz Staples plus readings from junior members of the community. Musical accompaniment came from the church organ plus Tutbury Band.

Towards the end of the service there was a rousing rendition of “He’s go the whole world in his hands” led by Venerable John Hall and the young people on the front rows.

Remembrance Service 2012

In 2012 Remembrance Sunday fell on Armistice Day. Tutbury’s Remembrance Service on the 11th Day of the 11th Month started in Cornmill Lane.

There was a good turnout from the village uniformed groups who paraded, led by a piper and drummer, to St Mary’s Priory Church. There was a great turnout of onlookers on the village streets as the parade marched by.

The Service in the Church was led by Revs Alex Mann and Alan Wheale, with the Tutbury Band playing the hymns to a church full to capacity. This years’ service saw slight changes to the format with the inclusion of younger members of our community reading appropriate and very moving poems, together with the juniors singing a song named Shalom.

The Church PCC weren’t expecting such a fantastic attendance and is conscious that it was a very tight squeeze to get everyone in to St Mary’s. Plans are in place to increase seating capacity for next year.

Mr John Sneyd was presented with a commendation from the Bishop of Lichfield for 57 years’ service as a Lay Reader in the Church of England, it was wonderful that so many people were present to congratulate and applaud John on this remarkable achievement.
