REMEMBRANCE DAY BARWON HEADS 2021.

A small service was held at the Barwon Heads Community Hall at 10.45 on Thursday 11th November with a group of local school children (60) and some 20 locals. Flanders Field and The Answer to Flanders Field were read by Claudi Collins and Cooper Hill with The Act of Remembrance reading by Rev. John Minitto. Three school children did the important Flag raising during Rouse while others laid wreaths at the memorial.

Thankyou to everybody that came to the service, we are hoping that next year both ANZAC day and Remembrance day services will be back to normal.
