Alderley Edge pays tribute to our fallen heroes

Alderley Edge marked Remembrance Day today (Sunday, 10th November) as residents gathered to watch the parade pass through the village centre followed by a service to remember those who fought and sacrificed their lives 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 Talbot Road, Moss Lane, Trafford Road and Chapel Road before before proceeding down London Road to the War Memorial on Ryleys Lane.

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, British Red Cross, R.V.S, Wilmslow Lions, the police, Alderley in Bloom and the Union Club. They were joined by local air cadets, scouts, cubs, guides and brownies.

Following prayers and the wreath laying ceremony the Service of Remembrance took place at St Philip & St James Church.
