A short service was held last Tuesday to mark Remembrance Day in Hucknall and to remember the members of their armed forces who have died in the line of duty.

The ceremony was carried out on the market place in front of St Mary Magdalene Church. Councillor John Wilmott said: “There was a large turnout for this event with representatives from the Royal British Legion the church congregation and people from the town.”

The hostilities of World War One formally ended ‘at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.’
