Ickleford Remembers: The Armistice Centenary Commemorations 2018

As part of the extensive Armistice centenary commemorations in Ickleford this year, Alleyfield was used as the venue to plant a commemorative Oak Tree. Those attending the event processed from St. Katharine’s church to the Burial Ground, where a number of readings and prayers were said to honour the memory of all those that have died in various conflicts around the world.

Brian Reynolds, whose father served in WW1, planted the English oak tree and unveiled a ceremonial plaque which will serve as a reminder to those lost in the conflicts.

Transparent silhouettes were on display all around the village as a poignant symbol of those who sacrificed their lives for their country, whilst the Chairman of Ickleford Burial Ground Trust laid a wreath on the memorial site on the village green later in the morning.
