Cromer pays tribute on Remembrance Sunday

Many turned out on the gem of the Norfolk coast to pay their respects for those who have sacrificed their lives in time of conflict.

People cheered on route as familiar tunes filled the air bringing back many memories for veterans and service personnel.

The parade marched through Cromer town and saluted dignitaries as they passed the main stand. Cromer Mayor, Tim Adams, stood on the rostrum to greet participants.

North Norfolk MP Norman Lamb joined representatives from organisations including St John Ambulance, Cromer Town Council, RNLI, local Scouts and Guides as they marched towards Cromer church.

Inside hymns were sung and there was a moment of silence while the Last post poignantly echoed around the church.

John Needham, chairman of the Cromer Royal British Legion branch read a verse from ‘The Fallen’ a Poem by Robert Laurence Binyon.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

The Last Post

The service continued outside at the war memorial, where wreaths were laid to honour the fallen. Solemn music from Cromer and Sheringham Brass Band was played.
