Remembrance Day 2023

The Trust and the public gathered together on Friday the 10th of November to pay their respects to those who have sacrificed their lives in the line of duty.

Thank you to everyone who attended our Remembrance Day Service. We had an amazing turnout for such a memorable and moving event. It was heartwarming to see how many people from the local community came to share this day with us.

We would like to reshare the poem read as part of the service.

'In Flanders fields the poppies blow

Between the crosses, row on row,

That mark our place; and in the sky

The larks, still bravely singing, fly

Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago

We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,

Loved and were loved, and now we lie,

In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:

To you from failing hands we throw

The torch; be yours to hold it high.

If ye break faith with us who die

We shall not sleep, though poppies grow

In Flanders fields.'

In Flanders Fields, By John McCrae

A special thank you goes out to Llanrumney Hall’s Manager, Kath Hinton for hosting such an emotional service.

Thank you to Chloe from Cathays Brass for touching everyone’s hearts during her performance of The Last Post.

A huge thank you goes out to Bearbones Offroad for kindly offering two military Land Rovers to be part of our service.

Our gratitude goes out to the ladies from Knit & Natter and Lynne Dando for knitting amazing poppies and creating beautiful displays.

A final thank you to the children from Step By Step Childcare for laying their lovely poppy artwork with the memorial wreaths.
