After the service, Fr Leonard and any members of the Congregation who wish to go, will depart for the Commonwealth War Cemetery, Poseidonos Ave, Alimos, where more than two thousand Commonwealth servicemen of the Second World War are buried or commemorated.  A service will take place there, together with Dignitaries and other members of the Commonwealth, during which there will be the laying of wreaths.

Poppies are on sale at the Church all this week and at the Community Connect Coffee Morning.
