It is ANZAC day on Sunday 25th April and in Harefield we have a very strong historical bond with the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. St. Mary’s churchyard contains war graves from both world wars, 120 of which are First World War graves of Australians who died in No. 1 Australian Auxiliary Hospital at Harefield Park.
Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 visited the cemetery to lay flowers at the graves, something which children from the school have done for the past hundred years.
You can watch the special ANZAC service which will be streamed on the St Mary’s church website (www.stmarys-harefield.org.uk) at 3pm on Sunday.
