Paul Mellor, senior chaplain at Marham, said: 'Our whole community from the oldest to the youngest are joining together to commemorate not only the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War but also the formation of the RAF, through a variety of performances including poetry, songs and drama. It is a fitting way to remember and respect the sacrifices of all who have served in all three armed forces.'
