SUNSHINE greeted well-wishers as Knutsford remembered those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

Knutsford marked Remembrance Sunday on November 13 with its annual parade and services to honour military heroes who lost their lives while serving their country.

The parade departed from Drury Lane and marched along King Street, Tatton Street, Canute Place, Princess Street and Church Hill to St John’s Church.

Following the Remembrance Service, the parade reassembled on Church Hill and marched back to Drury Lane via King Street.

There were also a further wreath-laying ceremonies at St Cross Church on Mobberley Road, at the War Memorial, Memorial House on Northwich Road and at the Airborne Forces Memorial in Tatton Park.

Clr Stewart Gardiner, Knutsford Town Mayor, said he was really pleased with the turn out for the parade and services.

“We reinstated a proper ceremony at St Cross this year with a bugler and I do think there were more people in the street for the parade but that could have been because it was a pleasant day,” he said.

“When we were walking back along Bottom Street, a number of staff in the bars and restaurants were all standing outside with their poppies and that was really good to see.

“I’d also like to thank all the people who joined me on Friday for the ceremony.”
