Last Sunday 10th November, Remembrance Sunday saw a huge congregation at St Aidan’s Church where Reverend Keith Lumdson kindly conducted the service. Following the Church service there was a procession to the War Memorial led by Deputy Lord Lieutenant Susan Robertson, civic dignitaries, military personnel, representatives from various organisations and individuals.
Local resident, Simon Howe kindly sounded the Last Post and the two minutes silence was observed; he then sounded the Reville which was followed by over thirty wreaths being laid and many crosses.
On Monday 11th November, Remembrance Day the flag was raised by the Deputy Mayor and two minutes silence observed.
On behalf of the Town Council the Mayor, “Thanked everyone for the great turn out to respect our Armed Forces, Chilton & Windlestone residents and everyone involved certainly display their upmost respect which must be commended. Also thanks to our Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal Organiser for co-coordinating the fundraising for this worthy appeal. Special mention must be given to students from UTC who kindly fabricated brackets to display the Remembrance wreaths”
