Service and parade to remember the Fallen
WREATHS were laid at Kettering war memorial on Remembrance Sunday, led by Father James at St Mary’s Church, Kettering, chaplain to the local branch of the Royal British Legion.
The parade around Kettering was led by Captain Mark Smeathers and the Salvation Army Band, ending at Kettering Parish Church (pictured) where Canon I McCormack and Rev Dr John Smith officiated. Pupils from Kettering’s Greenfields Primary School read ‘In Flanders fields the poppies grow’ and laid wooden poppy crosses at the memorial.
Derek Bradshaw, vice-chairman of Kettering Royal British Legion, said: “A fantastic reception was held afterwards, given by our mayor and town council – truly a day to remember.”
