Alderley Edge pays tribute to the fallen

Alderley Edge marked Remembrance Day on Sunday, 12th November, with a parade and church service to honour those who fought and and made the ultimate sacrifice while serving for their country.

Organised by the Alderley Edge branch of the Royal British Legion, the parade departed from the Festival Hall and marched along Moss Lane, Trafford Road and Chapel Road before proceeding down London Road to the war memorial.

Local residents lined the streets to pay their respects and observe the parade which included the Deputy Lieutenant of Cheshire along with members from the Royal British Legion, Alderley Edge Parish Council, clergy, Churches Together, Cheshire Muslim Association, Cheshire Police, British Red Cross, and RVS. They were joined by local scouts, cubs, guides and brownies.

Following prayers and the wreath laying ceremony the parade marched back up London Road for the Service of Remembrance at Alderley Edge Methodist Church.

On the 11th, I was in Sainsburys; shoppers came to a halt for the two minutes
It was rather moving.
