HUNDREDS of people attended events all across the Vale of Evesham and the Cotswolds to honour the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen and women involved in the two World Wars.

In Evesham on Remembrance Sunday uniformed organisations and ex-service personnel led a parade from to the War Memorial before the two-minute silence.

Following the Act of Remembrance, the band lead the ex-service standard bearers, the Civic Party and the uniformed organisations to All Saints’ Church for a Service of Remembrance. Mayor of Evesham Cllr Mark Goodge said: “I was very pleased by the turnout.

“It was good to see a good turnout from the town and the organisations involved.”

“The weather was very kind to us given how it has been over last few days.”

In Pershore a service took place at the abbey and a parade marched through the town.

There was a Remembrance Service at Wick war memorial on Sunday afternoon.
