Services at the Parish Church: on Sunday are both Holy Communion, at 8am and 10am, and then the Daffodil Service takes place in the afternoon at 4pm. This is a service for those bereaved, and is an opportunity to remember loved ones who are no longer with us. Daffodil bulbs will be planted in the churchyard after the service as a symbol of remembrance. The following Sunday is, of course, Remembrance Sunday, so the service starts at the later time of 10.30am, followed by the laying of wreaths at the War Memorial.
