‘They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn,
At the going down of the sun, and in the morning
We will remember them’

On Sunday 13th November, The High Sheriff and his Consort, Miss Lesley Machin, were honoured to attend the Borough of East Staffordshire’s Remembrance Day Parade and Service. This was at the invitation of the Mayor of East Staffordshire, Councillor Phil Hudson and the Mayoress, Mrs Hudson.

The Parade began at Burton upon Trent Library car park and was led by Corporal Watchman VI and Dog Handler. The route proceeded down the High Street into the Market Place arriving at St Modwen’s Parish Church for the Service of Remembrance at 1000 hrs.

The Act of Remembrance followed at 1055 hrs at The War Memorial in Lichfield Street and the wreath laying ceremony took place on the cenotaph.

Following the laying of the wreaths, the parade formed up to return down the High Street back Burton Library car park with eyes left for the Salute outside Barclays Bank. Light refreshments were served afterwards in the Market Hall.

The High Sheriff was honoured to lay a wreath at the cenotaph on such a poignant day.
