100-year anniversary of Armistice Day

The 100-year anniversary of Armistice Day will be a big event, the important thing is that time never forgets those who gave their lives.

On the centenary of the Armistice, it is right that we come together to give thanks to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice and those who returned home to help shape the world we live in today.


They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning,

We will remember them.


Lets give thanks for peace and those who returned from the Great War a century ago.


Thank you note received from Butterflies Children's Charity

It was a pleasure to assist the Butterflies Children Charity with a donation.
