Armistice Day – Remembrance Sunday – Sunday 11th November – 100 years on.
The Armistice of 11th November 1918 was the Armistice that ended the fighting on land, sea and air in World War 1 between the Allies and their opponent, Germany.
Also known as Armistice of Compiegne from the area it was signed, it came into force at eleven o’clock in the morning – the “eleventh hour or the eleventh day of the eleventh month” of 1918.
Two minute silence. At 11am on each Remembrance Sunday a two minute silence is observed at war memorials and other public spaces across the UK. It came to symbolise the end of the war and provide an opportunity to remember those who had died.
Poppies are used to remember those who have given their lives in battle, these are the flowers that grew on the battlefields after World War One ended.
Every year, volunteers make poppies available throughout the country, collecting donations from people to wear them. The money raised from the donations is used to help servicemen and women whose lives have been changed by wars they have fought in.
There is no correct side to wear your poppy but to wear it with pride.
The Canadian military doctor and artillery commander Major John McCrae, who had to stand in to conduct a burial as the Chaplin was called away later wrote the iconic poem “In Flanders Fields”.
In Flanders Fields
by John McCrae, May 1915
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.

We are pleased to say that others evidently feel the same way and we have already had some very positive viewings of properties that we have on our website with an increase in enquiries for both sales and rentals and the outlook is good. The market is still slow but our clients are taking our advice that prices need to be realistic and properties presented in excellent order to attract the discerning applicant.
It is also the time of year to head to the slopes and there we can help you too – we have some very lovely ski chalets in Switzerland to rent and to buy – so get your skis on!

Well Spring certainly arrived with a bang! What a fantastic weekend. I was fortunate enough to be taken to Marlow in Bucks, for a walk through the bluebells and with temperatures hitting 27 degrees, it really was glorious! Hopefully the good weather will have the usual effect on the property market and the team will notice a surge of buyers and tenants! Ria, Niki and Nigel would love to see you for a coffee in the office and to discuss any property queries you may have.

We are delighted to be sponsoring Nigel's daughter Jess, in her first ever London Marathon on April 24th. She will be wearing the Malverns colours as well as those of the Katie Piper Foundation, the Charity Jess is raising money for. We are hoping to help her raise her target of £3000, with a little bit of help from our loyal friends and customers. She is already half way towards her target and we believe that with a little push and some small donations from malverns clients, we can push her over the target. Katie Piper is a Charity that raises awareness and money for burns victims as well as acid attack victims. Please give generously if at all possible. https://justgiving.com/jesshumphriss
