ALCESTER remembered those who served at the weekend.

Record numbers joined The British Legion parade on Remembrance Sunday watched by hundreds of mebers of teh public.

The Parade was so big extra time was needed to get everyone in to church. During the church service members of Alcester Scouts gave a presentation on their recent trip to the First World War battlefields.

Some 300 people attended the annual Poppy Concert at the Greig Sports Hall on the Saturday – which raised £1,500 for The Poppy Appeal.

The Armistice Day parade on the Friday saw 30 Legion members and veterans march down the High Street where they were met by over 100 people at The War Memorial on the St Nicholas Church Green for a service.

Secretary of Alcester Royal British Legion David Malin said: “The weekend’s Remembrance events have been remarkable and the support given has been exceptional. We have seen lots more people at our events this year, many were new residents to the town. “We definitely showed that Alcester Remembers the sacrifices made by our Armed Forces”.
