On Thursday evening Mike Petty gave a talk about “Zeppelins over Sutton, and the Fens in WW1”. On Friday and Saturday evening there was a shadow on Sutton Church.

The Remembrance Sunday parade in the morning from the Royal British Legion to the church saw more than 400 people join in and parade to the church for the service of commemoration.

The service was followed in the afternoon and evening by “Reflections on World War 1” in the church, a collection of readings and poems, stories and music from the time.
