We would like to extend a big thank you to everyone who attended the museum’s annual Remembrance Sunday Service this afternoon at the RAF Winthorpe Memorial in our Memorial Garden, on a nice late autumn afternoon.
The service commemorated all of the service personnel who are remembered on the various memorials and tributes in the RAF Winthorpe Memorial Garden and around the wider museum site.
The service was led by the Reverend Alan Boyd, and we are grateful to the various local civic dignitaries who attended to lay wreathes; plus the representatives of various local service organisations. The Last Post & the National Anthem were played by museum Vice-President, Roger Bryan.
A special thank you goes out to Nigel Bean for making all of the arrangements for the service and to his wife Jude, who along with Nigel put in hours of work to get the area ready for the service.
Finally thanks also to the local RAFA Branch who arranged the raffle that raised valuable funds towards the upkeep of the Memorial Garden.
