It's just overwhelms your life altogether.

:01:35.:01:37.

It's very sad to see someond who was so articulate, so clever,

:01:38.:01:40.

so strong come to a stage where he just can't think much for hhm

100 years ago it was dubbed the most patriotic village in England

:02:46.:02:50.

due to the high proportion of men who served in the First World War.

:02:51.:02:55.

We felt it was important th`t we remind people of what this village

:02:56.:02:58.

Schoolchildren played a pivotal role and they weren't glorifying war

:02:59.:03:05.

They were remembering the sdnse of community and they were reminding

Let's see what the weather has in store, with Sara.

Well, we've had a lot of cloud today.

:04:20.:04:21.

In fact, it did try to brighten up a little bit late afternoon but the

:04:22.:04:25.

cloud is thick enough at thd moment to produce the odd light shower
