Crosses laid at Burnham-On-Sea war memorial ceremony
were laid next to Burnham-On-Sea's war memorial on Sunday (November
7th) during a short ceremony to dedicate the ground where next
week's Remembrance Day parade will be held.
Burnham's Mayor and Mayoress, Michael and Maria Clarke, were
among those taking part in the event outside Burnham Hospital
in Love Lane alongside members of the town's Royal British Legion.
A brief service was led by Reverend Eric Petrie in which a recording
of the Last Post was played. Next weekend's Remembrance Sunday
commemorations will be held as usual at 11am besides the war memorial.
