LEST WE FORGET: Details of how Fenland will remember the fallen on Remembrance Sunday
PEOPLE across Fenland have remembered those who lost their lives in service today - and there will be more events throughout the weekend.
On Remembrance Sunday, church services will be held and poppy wreaths laid at war memorials all around the district, as the dead of two world wars and more recent conflicts are honoured.
Here are details of the services taking place in Fenland’s four market towns on Sunday.
The Remembrance parade will leave Furrowfields car park at 2.30pm, led by the Band of the ATC. A salute will be taken at the corner of New Road by a Fijian soldier and a representative from RAF Wyton. Wreath-laying will take place at the war memorial followed by a service in church at 3pm. All are welcome; refreshments will be served afterwards in the Bricstan Room.
Parade forms up at Mill View car park at 10; all service and ex-service personnel are welcome. The parade leaves at 10.30am, led by the band of the 2020 Squadron Air Training Corps, to reach St Peter’s Church for service at 11am. The parade marshal will be Major Nigel Spencer, MBE, Royal Engineers. After the service, the parade will reform, and move to the war memorial for a wreath laying ceremony.
