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.”
