Children from Merlins and Ospreys walked to the Cenotaph in Dinnington, to learn about its significance and history in our local area. The Cenotaph was unveiled in 1922 and now has 110 names, engraved on it. The soldiers it commemorates died in the First and Second World Wars, including the Battle of the Somme in World War One.
We learned about the Order of Service that usually takes place on Remembrance Sunday, including prayers; had two minutes silence and listened to the Last Post before laying a wreath on the memorial.
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.
