We will be holding a service of Remembrance at 10:00 am in Landkey village hall on 14th November 2021 to recall the sacrifice paid by our armed forces in defending our nation.

The service will be followed by the Act of Remembrance at the war memorial, including two minutes' silence at 11:00 am. All are welcome to attend.

From Charles Waldron on 16th May 2021:

Subject: A message from Australia!

Landkey residents might like to read this message which was sent to me by Hazel Chappell who lives in Australia but has Landkey connections. She has given permission for it to be published. "My grandson has introduced me today to your web site! Looking back on my birth place, lovely Landkey! I was born and brought up in Landkey. Went to the Chuch of England school and on to Barnstaple Girls Grammar School. My family are all at rest in the churchyard. My grandfather was the village blacksmith when I was young. My uncles worked locally for years. One for Watts, the cattle lorry people. One for GWR after working for Darches the Bakers and one for Bert Jones the farmer. Bert was once captain of the England Rugby Union team! I have so many happy memories of home and at one time I intended to come home when my life was over to be buried in the churchyard by the holly bush, being overlooked by Codden Hill. But now I live in Australia, close to my lovely family so I doubt if I will be there! Part of me will always belong back home. So pleased to have seen the photographs and enjoyed the memories. Thank you! "

From Charles Waldron on 9th November 2020:

Subject: Act of Remembrance 2020

St Paul's Church, together with Landkey Parish Council, conducted a short Act of Remembrance at the village war memorial on Sunday 8th November at 10:45am. Rules to prevent the spread of Covid-19 meant that we could not hold a service in the village hall as we would normally have done.

A group of six village representatives led the Act, including the laying of wreaths and the holding of two minutes' silence at 11am. Around 40 village residents observed the proceedings, as they were allowed to do, and took care to comply with social distancing requirements.

Wreaths were laid by Richard Halliday on behalf of Landkey Parish Council and by Mike Foster for St Paul's Church. Chris James led the Act while Charles Waldron called out the names of those soldiers listed on the memorial as having given their lives in time of war. Peter Elder and John Hayes respectively read the odes, "For the Fallen" and "The Kohima Epitaph".

We thank village residents for coming to observe the Act in a way which complied with rules preventing the spread of infection and also the drivers who waited patiently with their engines off during the ceremony.
