Mayor leads Remembrance tributes across the borough
Polish community also pay their respects at war memorial
REMEMBRANCE Sunday services have been held to honour the men and women who fought in the First and Second World Wars and later conflicts.
The Mayor of Hillindgon, Cllr George Cooper, attended services at Uxbridge and Harefield, while a poignant silence was also held at the Polish War Memorial.
Cllr Cooper took part in the Civic All Age Parade at St Margaret’s Church, in Windsor Street, which was followed by the act of remembrance, including wreath laying at Uxbridge Peace Memorial, before
The Uxbridge Gazette Series attending the Memorial on the Green in Harefield.
Children from Bourne Primary School, in South Ruislip, sang at the Polish War Memorial. The awardwinning school choir attend each year and head teacher Geraldine Mappley was also there. She said: “The service was lovely. Obviously there is a very large Polish community in the area and a large number of Polish parents that go along to it.
“It’s wonderful to be able to take part in this service of remembrance for both countries.”
The school’s music coordinator Marek Maryniak is himself from Poland, and led the Polish community with the singing of their national anthem.
