A Nation's Tribute
This will take place at All Saints Parish Church, Stanton, between 6 and 8 pm on Sunday 11th November, as part of a nationwide commemoration of this important event.
Our commemoration will take place as follows:
6.00pm Church Service of Remembrance led by Mrs Diana Jones.
6.45pm Wreaths will be laid at the War Memorial outside the church.
6.55pm The Last Post will be played by Hugo Tuttey. Following this there will be a one minute silence.
7.00pm The memorial beacon will be lit by Mrs Janet Baines. This symbolises an end to the darkness of war and a return to the light of peace.
7.05pm The church bell (rung by Mr Bill Dargue) will ring out in celebration of peace.
7.10pm Soup and other refreshments will be provided inside the church. You will have the opportunity to find out about the local men who fought and died in this conflict. There will also be a memory tree for you to commemorate your own family members who fought in WW1. Some may have died in the conflict but all those who returned bore the scars, physical or mental.
7.30pm The St Cecilia Chorale will sing a medley of songs from the First World War which everyone can join in with.
If you don’t want to join in with the church service, you’re very welcome to come along for later events but please be respectful of the one minute silence by not arriving at this time.

Football Remembering [click for details]
Notts County Council are publicising a Games of Remembrance Day planned on November 8 involving football matches at Notts County and Nottingham Forest grounds and played between Men and Women of the British Army and similarly teams from German Armed Forces.
The two games - Ladies at the County ground at 12 noon and men at Forest at 7pm - are meant to replicate similar games that took place on Christmas Day 1917 when a WW1 24 hour truce was agreed between England and Germany and which resulted in football being played between the Army personnel of the two countries.
The two games on November 8 will be attended by VIPs and sporting legends from both countries and there will be fan zones, music and exhibition areas at both grounds.
A family ticket for the women’s game will cost £5 (1 adult and 2 children) and for the evening game two adults and two children will be admitted for £10. There will be a concession price of £2.50 to either game for any uniformed services, under 16’s, students and senior citizens.
Tickets are on sale on-line and from the box office of the host clubs.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
The Games of Remembrance through the power of football, aims to bring WW1 stories of courage and sacrifice alive, 100 years after the guns fell silent.

About Stanton-on-the-Wolds Village
Stanton-on-the-Wolds is a small village ten miles south-east of Nottingham. The Saxon settlement that became the village was called ‘Stanton’ or ‘stoney town’ after the copious stones or boulders found in the locality; ‘Wold’ refers to a low wooded hill.
The medieval village lay between the church (now dedicated to All Saints) and the manor house to the west. Following sixteenth century enclosure for sheep farming, the village houses were dilapidated and the village became deserted.
