Children from across the town of Barnstaple came together in Rock Park on Friday 8th November, to mark Armistice Day. The 15th annual service marked the 100th anniversary of the first Armistice Day in 1919. A remembrance service was led by the Reverend David Fletcher and included a lone piper and a bugler, who played the last post, followed by two minutes' silence.
The prefects of The Park Community School read First World War poems In Flanders Fields by John McCrae (Amelia Pengally) and Dulce Et Decorum Est by Wilfred Owen (Daniel Mock).
