Broxbourne Remembers

Broxbourne remembers

 

Remembrance Sunday is a time for reflection and thanks to those that have made the ultimate sacrifice for our security. It affects every community across the country and in our Borough families came out in force as communities across our towns paid their respects. 

Our MP, Charles Walker, and Mayor, Martin Greensmyth, laid wreaths at Cheshunt War Memorial whilst the Leader of the Council, Mark Mills-Bishop, and the Conservative Association paid thier respects in Hoddesdon. Council wreaths were also laid in Broxbourne and Goffs Oak. 

The sense of community is evident as hundreds of people watched groups, ranging from the Royal British Legion, Scouts and Guides to St John’s Ambulance and the Police, led commemorations. These events get bigger every year and demonstrates the impact conflict has in the Borough and we are grateful that we were able to pay our respects to those that fought and died for our country.
