Picture Gallery: Remembrance at Caistor

On a beautiful morning, a parade, led by David King, proceeded to Caistor Methodist Church where a moving service of remembrance was led by the Rev Andrew Lomax and the Rev Canon Ian Robinson.

Following the service the parade made its way to the war memorial where an Act of Remembrance took place with the names of the fallen in the 1914-1918 and the 1938-1945 wars and read out to a large hushed crowd of local residents.
