Bedworth memorial service

Report by James and Ellie


Mrs Marrow invited us to join her attending the War Memorial service in Bedworth town on Monday 11th November. We travelled into town in Mrs Marrow's car and parked outside her friend's house and walked into the town centre because the traffic was really busy.


When we arrived in the town centre we went into the Civic Hall and we saw the Mayor. She was wearing a hat and a large black and red coat with fur trimmings. She also wore a long, chunky gold chain which looked super heavy! In the Civic Hall we met up with some children from other local schools, like the Cannons and Ash Green.


Then we all left the Civic Hall and we walked along the road into the town. We stopped at the war memorial and the VIP guests stood right behind us.


"The Mayor was right behind me!"



We sang hymns and the National Anthem. Then we did the two minute silence when it turned 11 o'clock to remember soldiers who have died in past and present wars around the world. After that there was a plane that flew over the town and it dropped poppies all over the memorial.


Later on a vicar blessed Bedworth town's special memorial wall, just outside the Miner's Welfare Park.


At the end we stood with Mrs Marrow and watched all the soldiers and the band marching up the town. We also saw some of our old Year 6 children.
