Remembrance Service - Thank You

Our annual Remembrance Sunday Service took place on Sunday 11th November at 3pm in the RAF Winthorpe Memorial Garden.

The service commemorated all of the service personnel who are remembered on the various memorials and tributes around the museum site.

Arrangements were co-ordinated by our Groundsman, Nigel Bean and the service was led by the Reverend Alan Boyd. Various local service organisations, veterans and the Air Training Corps paraded at the ceremony and we were honoured to have various local civic dignitaries in attendance to share in our act of Remembrance.

The parade assembled on our Southfield Site next to the new Museum Café before marching to the Memorial Garden; the Last Post was played by Roger Bryan, one of the museum's Vice-Presidents.

After the ceremony everyone retired to the Museum Café for tea, coffee and biscuits; a contribution for which was gratefully received from the Balderton Branch of RAFA.
