THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE attended Hinckley’s annual Remembrance Sunday service which took place at the Argents Mead war memorial yesterday (10 November).

Clergy and church members of different denominations, the Royal British Legion and Veterans Groups, Civic Leaders, representatives of the Guiding, Scouting and Cadet Organisations all contributed to the morning’s service.

The annual parade started from the hospital car park on Mount Road to the war memorial before the service. Following the service the parade continued down Castle Street, through the Market Place - where a salute was taken - and into St Marys Road.

Bill Cullen, Chief Executive of Hinckley & Bosworth Councillor said:

We are pleased that so many veterans, serving personnel, uniformed organisations and members of the public attended the Remembrance Parade and Service. It is always a moving occasion and an opportunity for each of us to remember, reflect and show our respect to all those who have given their lives for the peace and freedom we enjoy today.
