The community of Alford and surrounding towns and villages came together for the dedication of the Alford and District Branch Standard at St Wilfrid’s Parish Church in Alford on Sunday (August 2).

The service started with the old standard of Alford and District Branch of the Royal British Legion being marched on parade for the last time.

The old standard was given to St Wilfrid’s church for safe keeping which was presented by the branch president Graham Marsh.

Afterwards, the new standard was received by the standard bearer Irene Smith.
