This time last year Debbie Burbage Recruitment delivered hot pies to the homeless in Northampton, along with a hot drink, when the temperatures plummet to freezing or below the team will be repeating the gesture as it was found to be very rewarding to both staff and the recipients of the hot treats.


Each year at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, we observe a Two Minute
Silence. Armistice Day on 11 November marks the end of the First World War and is a day to remember and honour those who have paid the price for our freedom.


In the spring of 1915, shortly after losing a friend in Ypres, a Canadian doctor, Lieutenant Colonel
John McCrae was inspired by the sight of poppies growing in battle-scarred fields to write a now
famous poem called ‘In Flanders Fields’. After the First World War, the poppy was adopted as a
symbol of Remembrance.



In Flanders’ fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place: and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders’ fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe;
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high,
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In
Flanders’ Fields.
