Burnham marks Remembrance Day with ceremony at war memorial
More than 200 dignitaries, former service personnel and representatives from local groups gathered at Burnham-On-Sea’s war memorial on Sunday morning, November 13th, to mark Remembrance Day.
In a ceremony led by Rev Graham Witts, wreaths were laid by Burnham MP David Heathcoat-Amory, pictured right, and town Mayor Eric Gill, plus leaders of other groups in the town.
Two minutes’ silence was held at exactly 11am followed by the playing of the Last Post.
A procession then followed along Love Lane to St Andrew’s Church where a service marking the occasion took place. Our photos show the ceremony at the town’s War Memorial.
