Lest we forget

Today the town fell silent as a procession headed through the Square towards All Hallows, while the Union Flag fluttered in its own respect on the Town Hall.

But it is not about who marches, who rings the bells, who stops the traffic, or who leads the service.
Remembrance Sunday is a time for reflection, for peaceful thought and reverence for those who have given their lives for our country.

Young and old took part from the town’s young beavers and scouts to members of the Royal British Legion, from the police to the Town Mayor and Councillors, while roadside onlookers bowed their heads and traffic paused.

At All Hallows the congregation paid its respects to all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in past and more recent conflicts.

This time for Remembrance is one that binds our country.
