Hunstanton High Street pauses for Act of Remembrance
The High Street was closed this morning for an Act of Remembrance at 11am.
Norfolk Police closed the road, shoppers paused and business owners stood at their doors to witness the Royal British Legion Standard Bearer Ralph Hamlet and RNLI Standard Bearer Brian Penty take their positions for the Act of Remembrance.
Chairman of the Hunstanton Branch of the Royal British Legion Simon Matthews, Rev'd Rachael Dines and Hunstanton's Mayor Cllr Maureen Howard joined the Standard Bearers in the road and Rev'd Dines began with a prayer. Simon Matthews read the Exhortation and the Kohima Epitaph.
Amongst the crowd were Anthony Jewell, the Hunstanton RBL President, HM Coastguard, former and current Town Councillors and former service personnel.
