Prayers were given by the local clergy and the standard bearers lowered their flags just before the clock struck 11am.

Just prior to the two-minute silence of remembrance, bugle player Adam Barter performed The Last Post.

Even though it was a cold and bitter morning, it didn’t stop the mass crowds lining the streets to watch many of the towns local organisations march down Eastgate, heading for the memorial.

Individuals, both old and young all played their part in Remembrance Sunday.
