Armistice Day remembered in 2020

Amid the current covid restrictions in place for Andover, people from the town still made their way to the War Memorial in St Mary’s Garden of remembrance to reflect on the sacrifices made by others to keep our freedom

On what was a grey day, not so many were present at the service in light of the restrictions, and social distancing was maintained by all as people gathered to pay their respects to those who paid the ultimate price in service to their country.

TVBC Mayor Cllr Hatley led the service, with the verse from the poem ‘For the fallen’, by Laurence Binyon following, after which Last Post was played to indicate the start of the two minutes silence, followed by the exortation. Reveille was played after the silence followed by the wreath laying.

A sombre day of remebrance befitting the nature of the events. Events we all hope never reoccur.

We will remember them
