Armistice Day in Uppingham

There was standing room only for the service of Remembrance Day 2018 at St Peter & St Paul, Uppingham. People of all ages were present including many youngsters, meaning that ‘we will remember them’ is true. Thanks to Rev. Rachel Watts, Richard Cole and choir for a moving service and wreath-laying.

At the service we discovered that Uppingham has five women leaders!  From left to right below,  Mayor Miranda Jones, Vicar Rachel Watts, me,  Commander of Rutland Police Louise Cordiner and High Sheriff Sue Jarrom!  Historic for Rutland! How highly appropriate for the centenary of women’s suffrage. All are shown below gathered at Uppingham’s war memorial for the wreath-laying.
