Poppy Wreathes on Uppingham memorial

Sunday 10th November 2019. Uppingham held it’s Armistice service in St Peter and St Paul church. Afterwards the well attended service was followed by the wreath laying at the memorial in the church grounds.

Despite the weather forecast telling us it would be a sunny and dry morning, Uppingham was under a dark grey rain cloud all through the wreath laying. Just heavy drizzle throughout.

The Rutland High Sheriff and the Lord Lieutenant were in attendance as well as members of the armed services, police, fire, and girl guides.

The wreathes were laid around the base of the memorial and a two minutes silence was observed. The National Anthem was then sung and the service drawnto a close.
