At the cenotaph a line up of the three services formed  to allow the Town Councillors and dignitaries to access the steps.

The Town Council would like to thank all who took part, also the police for their part in redirecting the traffic while the service at the cenotaph took place and at various points to ensure the safety of the parade.
