Remembrance Service Sunday 11th November 2018
On Sunday 11th November the Act of Remembrance was held at Cambourne Church. On the centenary of the end of the First World War, over 100 children and young people from the Air Cadets, Army Cadets, Rainbows, Brownies, Guides, Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Police Cadets paraded behind the marching band from the new cricket pavilion up Eastgate to the church. This year they were joined by the Fire Brigade.
The parade route was lined by poppies made by children from the local Guiding and Scouting organisations and each of the five schools (Cambourne Village College, The Vine Inter-Church Primary School, Jeavons Wood Primary School, Monkfield Park Primary School and Cambourne and Hardwick Community Primary School) made a striking large board of poppies which were mounted on the side of one of the church containers. These created a dramatic and thought-provoking visual focus to the service. 13 wreaths were carefully laid at the foot of the cross.
After the service, Cambourne Church welcomed everyone into the warm for hot drinks and cakes. It was wonderful to see around 500 people attending and taking part in this important community event.
Thank you so much to all those who were involved – in both seen and unseen ways.
On behalf of The Vine Inter-Church Primary School, we would like to thank everybody who bought one of our poppy raffle tickets. We raised £113 for The Poppy Appeal through the raffle and the lucky winner was Mathew in Year Four.
