There was a strong turn-out from the public at Little Common as veterans were joined by members of local youth organisations to mark Remembrance Sunday.

Members of the Little Common Branch of the Royal British Legion assembled in Meads Avenue for a parade to St Mark’s Church for a Remembrance service, including the Two Minute Silence at 11am.

Following the service there was a gathering at the War Memorial, in the centre of Little Common, where wreaths and poppies were placed in remembrance of the fallen.

A representative from the police laid a wreath and young members of local Air Training Cadets, and Scouting groups, of all ages, also took part.

Also attending was the Bexhill Deputy Mayor and local councillors.

Little Common Branch President Ernie Eldridge said: “It was a great success and there was a fabulous turn-out by members of the public. We even had a war horse making an appearance.”
