Willingdon, Wannock and Jevington
Down Your Way
OUR REMEMBRANCE SERVICE: At 11am on November 11 at the Triangle, Lower Willingdon went very well with many residents attending a small service conducted by Father Kevin Agnew from St Mary the Virgin, assisted by Rev David Yule of Trinity Church. On Sunday we had a magnificent parade as usual led by the Kingfisher Band from Upper Kings Drive to St Mary the Virgin Church. The Willingdon Branch of the British Legiion followed by Councilors, Scouts, Cubs, and Beavers from the 1st and 2nd Willingdon Scout Groups, Willingdon Guides and Brownies, and Representatives from St Johns Ambulances all paraded to the church where they were met by Ian White, Piper. A moving service followed by the laying of an additional wreath in the Garden of Remembrance took place. In the afternoon another service took place organized by the Parish Council at the Ruthless Memorial at Butts Brow , where Councillors were joined by our MP Caroline Ansell and the Mayor of Eastbourne Pat Hearn. The service was also taken by Father Kevin Agnew. (Jon Pritchett).
