Remembrance Sunday at Woodland House

Posted by cornwallcare on November 23, 2018

To honour our servicemen and women, one of Woodland House’s residents was invited to
1st St Enoder Church to celebrate Remembrance Sunday.

Lorna Garratt, Flexi-Carer and also Beaver Scout Leader for 1st St Enoder, arranged for Bill to be brought along with his family so they all could be involved in such a special day.

Bill (William Wilkins) is a veteran and served in the Second World War. Over 85 years ago he was a scout at 1st St Austell Scout Group of because of this he was invited to be invested into our 1st St Enoder Scout Group as an honorary member. He was also awarded with the Remembrance Sunday scout scarf and certificate.

Bill was amazing, the service was beautiful and created memories for him and his family they will never forget. It was an honour to be in the company of such an amazing man.

We thank you Bill

On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918 the guns of Europe fell silent. After four years of bitter fighting, The Great War was finally over. The Armistice was signed at 5am in a railway carriage in the Forest of Compiegne, France on November 11, 1918. Six hours later, at 11am, the war ended.
