The church will only be able to seat 45 people, due to social distancing so seating will be on a first come basis. The service will start at 10.50am at the War Memorial in the churchyard where the tributes to the fallen will take place with Royal British Leigeon representatives reading the names of the war dead. This years service will be led by Team Vicar Rev Matt Rowland.The congregation will then move into church for the remainder of the service.
