Chiswick Remembers

A large crowd came out at the weekend to mark Remembrance Sunday at the War Memorial at Turnham Green.
Wreaths were laid by the Mayor of Hounslow, Cllr Paul Lynch, our local VC veteran and many others. This was followed by a service in Christ Church Turnham Green, led by the Vicar, Mr Matt Boyes.

It was a lovely ceremony and service. The Mayoress' reading (Prudence Lynch) was especially moving as we remembered the brave soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines and veterans who have played a vital role in the defence of our country.

We owe it to those in the military, many of whom are still in Iraq and Afghanistan, making sacrifices to ensure our security and freedom at home. We appreciate what they have done and are doing.
We will continue to remember them.
