PParish Council Chairman’s address;
I would like to congratulate everyone involved in the weekend’s Remembrance event. With an estimated 300 attendees, Caddington Watch, the uniformed attendees in the form of the Cubs, Scouts, Beavers, Guides, Rainbows, the ladies who knitted over 2500 poppies and provided decoration for the church, Rev Rob O’Neil and the choir, the team of tea and coffee pourers, and my personal favourites the two young girls whose rendition of “Pack Up Your Troubles” saw more than a few brought close to tears, all went together to make it a very special event.
Amongst these and those I have forgotten to mention, a special thank you must go to Councillor Morland, who once again organised and MC’d the event flawlessly. He has now cemented himself in the role of organiser of this event for future years whether he likes it or not. In closing, thank you to everyone involved in making it such a special day befitting of the occasion.
Cllr Morland also sends sincere thanks to all individuals and organisations who assisted and participated in the Remembrance Service.
