Marking 80 years since D-Day

This week our priest in charge was honoured to be involved in the village commemorations of the 80th anniversary of the D-Day landings. As padre to the Mountsorrel branch of the Royal British Legion, Revd Colin Resch led prayers at the wreath laying ceremony in the Mountsorrel Memorial Centre attended by the Mayor of Charnwood Dr Julie Bradshaw MBE. Borough & Parish Councillors, invited guests and a delgation from our twinned village of Montsorreau in France were also present for the ceremony. It was a truly memorable occasion and a fitting tribute to the memory of the men and women who gave so much on that day to protect the freedom of our society.
