You may remember that last year a cryptic appeal for volunteers was sent out to take part in a Remembrance Sunday event. This year, with more time to plan and greater involvement from others in the town, the event will be going ahead on 12th November. This will be a torchlit procession. Each person in the procession will represent one of the people on the war memorial.
