Horsforth Cenotaph Remembrance Service – November ‘22

Published: 15 November 2022

It was a privilege and an honour for Horsforth Town Council to work collaboratively with Horsforth Royal British Legion to plan and deliver this year’s Remembrance March and Cenotaph Service. We took part in a newly routed parade march in readiness for next year’s march which will be incorporating a second stop at a new Boulder Stone (to commemorate the fallen, Horsforth Second World War veterans) where Stanhope Drive meets the Ring Road.

Rev. Larry Hibberd delivered an excellent, fitting service with help from Horsforth Choral Society leading attendees’ in singing ‘Joyful Joyful, We Adore Thee’ and Vera Lynn’s war-time favourite ‘We’ll Meet Again’ alongside a fantastic, empathetic recital of the world-renowned poem ‘In Flanders Field’ created by the poet John McCrae, by Horsforth Sixth Form Pupil Iliah Movahedzadeh.

Thank you and well done to all the community groups and the public who came together to make this years’ Remembrance Service truly special.
