On Sunday, 11 November 2018 we hosted a memorial service to commemorate 100 years of the first world war armistice, in conjunction with the Royal British Legion.
The service was held in the grounds of the Home and many of our staff and residents braved the cold to take part in the very moving ceremony. The poppy display which had been created by our residents alongside the children of Fullbrook School, was proudly displayed in the front grounds.
The guest of honour, Mr Ronald Perry MBE, who has been resident at Burlington Hall since 2016 and is himself an ex Royal Marine, laid a wreath as a mark of respect to the servicemen and women who have laid down their lives protecting our country.
The Royal British Legion have kindly offered to donate a war memorial for Burlington Hall and to visit our ex-servicemen on regular occasions to offer company and support.
