The town came together yesterday (Remembrance Sunday) to remember and honour those who courageously fought, having either suffered or lost their lives fighting for their country.

Beginning with a parade from the Arndale Centre, standard bearers and contingents included organisations such as 4 Platoon B (Royal Sussex) Company 3 Princess of Wales’ Royal Regiment, The Rotary Clubs, St John’s Ambulance and Police Cadets who all united for the march.

Accompanied by the Mayor and the Civic Party, a service was conducted by Father David Charles at the War Memorial, with Orders of Service distributed by the Rotary Club of Eastbourne.
