A CLERGYMAN who has served Spalding branch of The Royal British Legion for a quarter of a century, the Rev John Moon, was honoured at the legion headquarters in Spring Gardens.

Mr Moon, from Moulton, received a certificate and an engraved paperweight. He traditionally leads the Armistice service at Spalding Cemetery when poppy wreaths are laid on war graves and has taken many services on Remembrance Sunday in Ayscoughfee Gardens and at the legion’s memorial tree at Springfields.

Legion vice-chairman Wally Tennant said: “He’s been great. He’s a good man and his work is very much appreciated.”

Gifts were also presented to the Rev John Bennett and Sarah Chad for their work in adding names to the war memorial.
