Former England and Watford footballer Luther Blissett was among people to attend a remembrance service on Armistice Day.

Several people attended the service in the Peace Garden on the grounds of the Seventh-day Adventist church headquarters Wednesday, November 11.

The socially distanced outdoor service was initiated by the charity community organisation One Vision and pastoral staff of Stanborough Park church.

During the service, Blissett shared words on behalf of the community and several wreaths were laid, including one by the Deputy Lieutenant of Hertfordshire Justin Apthorp.

Representatives from the clergy were also in attendance including Pastor Ian Sweeney, president of the Seventh-day Adventist church, and Pastor Tim Roberts, chairman of Christians Across Watford.

Pastor Sweeney said:  “This is a reminder that we are to work tirelessly for peace in our neighbourhood, in our community, indeed peace across the world. Even though we know ultimately God will do it, let us strive to play our role where we can."

The Peace Garden which represents and honours those British servicemen during WW1 who were pacificists and chose not to bear arms, also became a place to acknowledge the estimated 20 million who lost their lives and the 700,000 who died on behalf of the British forces.
