Terry Hall the Parade organiser said “ The Parade has grown from strength to strength and is hugely important to the local community.

“I am always moved by the fantastic support we get for the Remembrance Parade.

“It is such a huge part of our country’s culture and a symbol of respect for those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in conflicts past and present.”
