NAILSEA'S Remembrance Day service was a great success.

The annual service, designed to honour those who had lost their lives in war, was held on Sunday, November 12.

Nailsea's ceremony was led by the rector of the Holy Trinity Church, James Packman, who gave a speech about the importance of peace.

The parade procession moved off from the Scout Hut on Hannah More Road at 10.15am and finished at the church for wreath-laying.

Wreaths were laid by Nailsea Air Cadets, Nailsea Army Cadets, first and second Nailsea Scouts, Nailsea Guides, Avon Fire Service, Nailsea Police, councillor Mike Bird Chair of Nailsea Town Council, and Chris Broughton on behalf the Nailsea & Backwell Rotary. 

The parade, which was led by a Brass Band, featured members from the Army and Navy Cadets, Scouts, Beavers, Guides and Brownies.

Jo Duffy, clerk of Nailsea Town Council, said: "This parade was much larger than previous years and we were so please with the turnout.

"I would like to say on behalf of Nailsea Town Council a big thank you to all the volunteers and council staff who helped and made this such a successful and emotional parade despite the rain."
