We remembered them

Villagers came together on Saturday 11th November for their annual remembrance service.

Held each year or or near to Armistice Day, the service takes place to remember everyone who has fallen in the service of their country.

Pant Memorial Hall was built as the village’s memorial to the ‘Great War’, initially as a reading and billiards room, but now a meeting place and asset for the whole community.

More recently the hall has housed a marble tablet in memory of local people who died in the First World War.

2018 marks the 100th anniversary since the end of the Great War and the committee at the hall is looking at ideas of how to mark this event in a permanent memorial at the hall. Local residents interested in helping to develop ideas are asked to contact the Secretary of the hall using email address secretary@pantmemorialhall.org.uk.

This year’s service was conducted by Rev Kathy Trimby, rector of the Border Parish Churches and included poetry readings, reading of the names from the tablet, a short address, a poppy laying ceremony and the sounding of the Last Post.
