REMEMBRANCE Sunday was marked in traditional fashion with a service at St Mary’s Church where the two-minute silence was observed followed by a parade to The Bowes Museum where wreaths were laid.
The parade was led by Barnard Castle Band, followed by the standards of veterans’ associations, scouts, guides cubs and rainbows.
Uniformed cadets from Barnard Castle School, veterans and wreath layers followed. Leading the wreath laying ceremony at The Bowes Museum’s memorial was Deputy Lord Lieutenant for County Durham Neville Fairclough, followed by town mayor Cllr Rima Chatterjee.
Various veterans’ groups, including the Royal British Legion and DLI Association, along with police, emergency services and scouts and guides also paid their respects to the fallen by placing poppy wreaths.
They were followed by community organisations, such as TCR Hub and Friends of Richardson Hospital, along with the head teachers of Green Lane, Montalbo and St Mary’s primary schools, along with Barnard Castle School.
