Andover does Remembrance with dignity and poise every year. On a damp and misty morning, hundreds gathered in St Mary’s church yard to show our respects to those who made the ultimate sacrifice. A traditional church service, a respectful wreath laying ceremony, asolemn silence and a helicopter flypast all made for a memorable morning.
There followed an excellent parade down Eastern Avenue and round the town with a wonderful bagpipe band for the first time in a number of years.
The night before had seen a splendid concert put on by Andover Town Band with a moving remembrance ceremony at its heart.
