Armistice day and Remembrance Sunday

On behalf of Sheringham Town Council I would like to thank all the people who helped to commemorate this year’s Armistice Day and remembrance Sunday. For the first time in three years residents were able to march behind Piper Jacob Millin, setting off from the Salvation Army up to the War Memorial in town.

Alan Daniels organised the March and the parade as well as ensuring that all the wreaths were laid. Brownies and Scouts read out the names of all the people who are commemorated on our war memorial and of course we also took the opportunity to remember those who had been lost in the later conflicts during the Falklands and Iraq.

The service was conducted by the rector of Saint Peters Church.

How lucky we are in our town to have so many people who are willing to help to make such an occasion memorable for all of us. A special mention for the members of the carnival committee who made sure the roads were safe for us and for the music from the Members of the Salvation Army band.

Cllr Madeleine Ashcroft
