Memorial for the Battle of Passchendaele

Hatfield Town Council held a memorial service on Monday 31 July (8pm) to remember those who gave their lives in the Battle of Passchendaele.

The service took place at Hatfield War Memorial on Great North Road, and was attended by members of the public, the Mayor of Hatfield – Councillor James Broach, and the Leader of Hatfield Town Council – Councillor Lenny Brandon.

Led by Father Darren Collins, Team Rector of Bishops Hatfield, the service began with a bidding prayer to those who lost their lives, followed by a reading from the Bible.

The Leader of Hatfield Town Council then laid a wreath of poppies, and members of the public were invited to light candles. Those attending then joined Father Collins in prayers, before a final prayer and blessing was made.
