On Castle Green sixty villagers kept the traditional two minutes silence for Armistice Day at 11.00 am on Friday 11th November 2022

The village having no outdoor war memorial Sulgrave’s own “unknown soldier” was temporarily removed from near the Stocks to Castle Green for a ceremony of remembrance, including the two minutes silence as the church clock struck 11.00 am and the playing of the “Last Post”.

The presence at the ceremony of two members of the Wapenham Branch of the Royal British Legion brought back many memories of my cousin Donald Taylor, who for many years tirelessly did the rounds of the village collecting for the poppy appeal. See here for more about Donald.
