Ms Sally Milner, Chaplain at Northumberland Church of England Academy, officiated at this year's Remembrance Day Service. It was certainly the largest turnout in recent years. Seldom can there have been so many wreaths laid at Lynemouth's War Memorial. It's fair to say that everyone present was very impressed by 12-year-old Cadet Tyrone Darbyshire's most excellent sounding of The Last Post before the two minute silence and the Reveille before the wreath laying. He played with great dignity. Many thanks also to Major Eyton Parker (Northumberland Church of England Academy Combined Cadet Force); Mrs. Amy Thompson (Head of the William Leech Campus); and Mr. Trevor Sutton and the 1st CELL Scout Group. Many thanks also to Mr. Dave Johnson at Lynemouth Miner's Welfare Institute and the Lynemouth ladies for preparing refreshments and hearty bowls of soup afterwards. The wintry chill failed to deter many local residents and veterans from paying their respects.
