Remembrance Sunday

We were blessed with good weather for our annual walk up to the War Memorial for the Remembrance Sunday Parade. The boom, boom of the bass drum could be heard coming down Norwich Road quite a while before we could hear the rest of the band, and then the parade marched past us and assembled around the memorial. The last post and then the silence is perhaps the most poignant bit. 
 George was disappointed that there was no representative from the Navy. 

Donna asked the bagpiper to do the honours for us on Burn's Night but unfortunately he's fully booked so he's coming one lunch time that week to pipe in the haggis and he's also coming on St Andrew's Day.

Thank you to all the staff, friends and family who came to help.
