Councillor Brian Eagling told the Recorder: "It was phenomenal.

"We got the local shops involved so that even though it's a small area, 29 wreaths were laid at the war memorial.

"Thank you to all of our local businesses. We were delighted with your support."

The day ended with a buffet at Harold Wood's branch of the Royal British Legion.
