Enderby Remembers

Members of the community in Enderby joined in a procession to remember over a million British and Commonwealth soldiers who died in both world wars and in more recent conflicts.

Local residents joined with Parish Councillors and members of the Royal British Legion, along with several local organisations to process through the village, led by musicians from the Enderby Band and standard bearers from the local Scouts and Guides.

The procession took place on a chilly but sunny morning and culminated in a Remembrance Sunday Service at Enderby Parish Church, conducted by the vicar Jerry Taylor.

During the service focus turned to the war memorial as names of the fallen were read out, a number of wreaths were laid and The Last Post was sounded.

The Service concluded with the singing of the National Anthem.

Remembrance Day

As in previous years, the guiding and scouting movements will be processing through Enderby Village on their way to the two Remembrance Day services, supported by Enderby Band.

The procession will start from Mill Lane by the Leisure Centre at 10.30am and will move through the centre of the village, calling at the URC for the younger members to attend their service, ending at the Parish Church in time for their Remembrance Sunday Service at 10.55am.

A warm welcome is extended to any service personnel, currently serving or retired and any members of the community who wish to join the procession.
