REMEMBRANCE SUNDAY 2009
8th November 2009 saw the Royal British Legion commemorate the end of World War I, II and other wars
at Louth's annual Remembrance Sunday event. A
Wreath Laying service took place at Louth War Memorial from 10.30am
and the Mayor, Councillor Keith A. Sharp laid a Wreath on behalf of Louth Town Council.
Canon Stephen Holdaway gave a short sermon at the War Memorial aided by
the Bishop of Grimsby and Councillor Gus Robertson, the President of the Royal British Legion Louth Branch
said the Eulogy. A two minute
silence was observed and this provided a unique opportunity for us to reflect on lives lost
during all the Wars in which this country has fought.
Those assembled then paraded to St. James’ Church for Divine Service
Canon Stephen Holdaway. Public support was magnificent and it went a long way to making the event more memorable. Louth Town Council would like to thank the British Legion Louth Branch, the Team
Parish of Louth, the drummers, the bugler, all those
parading uniformed services and all the youngsters who were in attendance as
their participation made the event the reverent and honourable occasion that the
brave servicemen and women who gave their lives for this Country deserve.
WE WILL REMEMBER
