Remembrance Day in Hayle

St Elwyn's Church, Hayle, was packed yesterday - Remembrance Sunday.  There were Guides, Scouts, army cadets and many men (and women) wearing medals.
There was a moving sermon which mentioned the National Explosives Factory in World War One and the two women who died in an explosion, buried in Phillack Church graveyard. The panels from our project Heart of Conflict are now in Phillack Church on display - so that their dangerous and courageous work will not be forgotten.  Everyone walked after the church service to the 11am silence and laying of wreaths at the war memorial.
