The traditional Hethersett Remembrance Sunday parade and memorial service took place on a glorious sunny autumn morning.
The Guides, Scouts, Brownies, Beavers and Cubs marched slowly from the centre of the village to the church, carrying the Union flag and their own standards. They were met at the War Memorial in the St. Remegius churchyard by residents of all ages.
A dedication to the fallen of the village was then led by Duncan Pigg, who read out the names of men who had died during the two world wars and the Cyprus campaign. There followed two minutes' silence, the start and end of which was marked by a lone bugler playing the Last Post.
youth organisations, schools, pensioners' association, other village churches
and the Parish Council then laid wreaths on the memorial, and each in turn
saluted in their own distinctive way. A Remembrance service in the church
followed at the end of this moving ceremony.
