In Memory – Remembrance Day

The motto of the Rotary movement is ‘Service Above Self’ and it is today sobering to reflect on the meaning of such words and on the sacrifice of the hundreds of people in Wolverhampton who gave their lives in the service of others.

Each year the the Rotary Clubs of Wolverhampton come together at the City’s Civic Service of Remembrance to honour the fallen. The service brings together representatives of organisations and communities from throughout the City in recognition of the sacrifices made and which continue to be made to preserve our freedoms.

‘They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condem
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.’
