The people of Dedworth and Clewer paid their own personal Remembrance tribute to the fallen of two world wars and other conflicts on Saturday.

Reverend Louise Brown, the vicar of Dedworth's All Saints Church teamed with the Rector of Clewer's St Andrews church Reverend Rosie Webb to arrange an open air service on Armistice Day itself, November 11.

Clewer Memorial Recreation Ground (affectionately known as Pirate Park) off Dedworth Road marked the perfect spot.

Scout and guide leaders joined young cubs, brownies, rainbows and beavers laying wreaths on the memorial there, along with individual members of the community.

Music for the hymns was provided by Sue Morgan from All Saints Church, while Matthew Tickle from Dedworth Green Baptist Church accompanied her on the trumpet as well as playing the Last Post and Reveille.

Light rain did nothing to dampen the enthusiasm as all who were there.

Miss Brown read out three names listed on the memorial chosen at random, saying: "These people were all from our community who had the courage to fight for their country and lost their lives.

"We need courage today too. It takes courage to communicate with each other, to help each other, to work together to create a better community."
