Young and old remember
The Chesham and Amersham MP, Cheryl Gillan, was one of the dignitaries to lay a wreath at the event.
Youth groups, including the Brownies and the Beavers, took part in the commemorations on Sunday, November 8 in the memorial gardens.
Chairman of the Amersham Royal British Legion, Bob Higgins, said: “This Remembrance Day is one of the busiest that we have ever had. There were lots of youngsters, I think the schools are very involved. It was a really good day.”
Amersham Band manager, Caroline Perkins, said: “Amersham Band played before and during SCHOOL councillors led the procession at a Remembrance Day service. St Mary's School took part in the commemorations in Old Amersham on Sunday, November 8.
Year six pupil Ben Foreman led the procession and placed the wreath down. Ben was joined by Jessica Pilgrim and his twin sister, Harriet.
Harriet said: "It was quite scary as we watched a lot of people in front of us put down the wreaths perfectly and it was a huge responsibility to get it right. I enjoyed doing it though and remembering those that died for us." the service, the Last Post and Reveille was played by Principal Cornet Marion Mayhew. The band, as always, was privileged to take part in this important service of remembrance in the Memorial Gardens, Old Amersham once again this year.”
