Havering will commemorate fallen heroes next week for Remembrance Sunday.

Veterans will be joined by residents, community groups and council officials at this year’s services.

War memorials in Havering are due to be the focal point for the ceremonies, with a two minute silence observed from 11am.

The main service in the borough will take place in Romford, and attended by Mayor of Havering, Cllr Lynden Thorpe. The parade will start at 10.30am on Western Road and finishing at Coronation Gardens.

Services will also take place in Hornchurch, Rainham, Upminster, Harold Hill, Havering-atte-Bower and Elm Park.

Mayor of Havering, Cllr Lynden Thorpe, said: “We have a duty to gather together once a year to remember those heroic people who have given up their lives for their country.

“The freedoms that we often take for granted only exist because these people made the ultimate sacrifice for future generations.”
