Reaseheath students and staff turned out in force at a college service today (Wed) to commemorate Remembrance Day. Over a thousand people gathered around the flagpole on the Nantwich college’s campus to pay tribute to those who lost their lives in conflict.
A wreath of poppies supplied by students was laid by Bill Holroyd, CBE, High Sheriff for Cheshire. Two minutes of silence was broken by Reaseheath Chaplain Drew Walker, who read the names on a college remembrance wall.
Mr Holroyd said: “This was a very impressive service attended by students who appreciate that many servicemen and women who are involved in current conflicts are the same age as themselves. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit and have been hugely impressed as to how the college has developed. Reaseheath College is a real asset to the county.”
