The weather remained dry for the Remembrance Day service on Sunday morning, which was well-attended with the normal congregation being joined by members of the local council, the neighbouring Methodist Church and parishioners.
The service, led by the parish rector, the Rev Canon David Miller, started in the church. Mr Chapman, clerk of Wendron Parish Council, read the first lesson, and the second was read by Gillian Bowles, a parish licensed reader. The preacher was Pastor Bill Reed from Porkellis Methodist Church, and sidespeople were Mary Cowley and Sue Spencer. Hymns were accompanied by Wendron and District Silver Bank and the organist was Anne Veneear. Just before 11am, everyone gathered around the village war memorial for the act of remembrance. After the names of those to be remembered were read by a representative from Wendron Parish Council, two members of the band sounded the Last Post and Reveille and a two-minute silence was observed. Wreaths laid included those on behalf of the Royal British Legion, the parish council and Wendron Church. After the singing of the National Anthem, Canon Miller led the intercessions.
The service concluded with the band playing for the last hymn. On Sunday, November 18, there will be a service of holy communion at 10.30am. The celebrant will be the rector, Canon David Miller.
