The Town Remembers ...

The Remembrance Sunday Parade and Service at the Memorial Gardens was very well attended on Sunday 12 November, to commemorate the contribution of military and civilian servicemen and women and to all those who suffered or died in the two World Wars and later conflicts. The RBL Branch Chaplain, Reverend John Glasspool, presided over the Service. The Parade was led by the Band of the Redhill Corps of Drums, followed by a procession of War Veterans, Councillors, Scouts, Army Cadets, local schools and other organisations marching up Victoria Road from the Royal British Legion Headquarters in Albert Road. The Memorial Gardens reached almost full capacity with visitors of all ages and poppy wreaths were reverently placed by representatives of the Royal British Legion, local government, cadets, schools and many other community groups.  For the first time, representatives of the 4 Armoured Medical Regiment were also present.  Prior to this event, on 8 November, the Garden of Remembrance was rededicated by the local Clergy and opened by the Chairman of Horley Town Council, Cllr Mike George, in memory Horley Branch members who passed away during the year. The National Two Minutes' Silence had previously been observed on Saturday 11 November in the town centre..
