300 people gather at Romsley's Armistice centenary commemorations

MORE than 300 people turned out to a day of commemoration in Romsley to mark the centenary of the Armistice.

The day began with an exhibition of local artwork and historical artefacts at the village’s Scout Centre before a┬ávery moving silence and Last Post at 11am.

At 7pm there was a second service and the lighting of a beacon which symbolised an end to the darkness and the ‘light of peace’ returning.

Romsley Parish Councillor David Powell said: “Today was poignant and very emotional and it was fantastic to see so many of our community come together to honour those affected by war.”

He thanked the Romsley Art Group, Romsley and Huntington History Society, Scouts, Girl Guides, Rainbows, Brownies, St Kenelms School and Nursery and St Kenelms Church for all their contributions to the day.
