A Gallipoli Remembrance
Midland Film and Art members were in attendance at a remembrance service held at St Peter's Church earlier today. Rain at the beginning of the morning became a concern but fortunately the weather improved and the rain held off for the service which was a blessing in itself. The Cradley and District Ex Service Association together with the Royal British Legion Cradley organised a parade at 11am along the Avenue Of Remembrance. The churchyard has memorial inscriptions dedicated to the men who died in Gallipoli.
The parade was lead by a piper and around fifty people from the community were in attendance.
Readings from the church members were lead by Rev Katryn Leclezio and the community sang the fitting song 'Amazing Grace' which was very moving.
MFAA used grant funding by the Heritage Lottery Fund to help with video documentation, refreshments and sound services by 'Weird Systems Ltd' who provided microphones and showcased music from the era.
Overall the day was a very successful, meaningful and heartfelt occasion and for MFAA members to be a part of such an event means a great deal.
