REPRESENTATIVES of groups from across the Chalfont St Peter community joined to commemorate Remembrance Day.
Members of the Royal British Legion, councillors and others took part in a parade from Chalfont Leisure Centre to the war memorial in the churchyard, where group representatives laid wreaths.
David Martin, Buckinghamshire County councillor for Chalfont St Peter, said: “It is a great honour to attend this event on behalf of the county council, and lay a wreath to commemorate the 150 men of Chalfont St Peter who fell in both world wars.
“Today’s attendance was higher than ever and it is heartening to see so many younger people and children here, and paying their respects.
“As ever the organisation by the Royal British Legion was first class and the church service was both moving and thought-provoking.”
