This year saw the return of a physical parade after the remembrance was observed virtually in 2020 due to coronavirus restrictions in place at the time which prevented public gatherings.
On Sunday 14th November, Enderby, along with communities across Britain, joined together in remembering the service and sacrifice, friendship and collaboration of the men and women of Britain, the Commonwealth and Allied nations who fought together.
Contingents from local organisations including Brownies, Guides, Rangers, Beavers, Cubs and Scouts took part in a Remembrance Sunday Procession, accompanied by musicians from Enderby Band.
They were joined by representatives from the British Legion, civic leaders and Leicestershire Police. Also taking part were friends and relatives of family members who served their country during the two World Wars and in various conflicts since. This includes the Falklands War, the Gulf War, and conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq and closer to home in Northern Ireland.
A two-minute silence was observed.
The procession assembled on Mill Lane close by the Leisure Centre and moved through the centre of the village, calling at the United Reformed Church for the younger members (cubs beavers brownies and rainbows ) to take part in a service in the United Reformed Church whilst the remainder processed to St.John’s Parish Church in time for the Remembrance Sunday Service which included the observation of a two minute silence.
