Evesham Editorial 23rd Sep, 2018   0

YOUNGSTERS from Evesham schools were again at the forefront of commemorations of the Battle of Britain in an annual service organised by the town’s Royal Air Force Association.

Pupils, teachers and support staff from Bengeworth CE Academy, the De Montfort School, St Andrew’s CE School, St Egwins CE Middle School, St Mary’s Catholic Primary School and Swan Lane First School lent their support to last Friday’s (September 14) service at the town’s Waterside cemetery.

A number of civic dignitaries including deputy Lord Lieutenant of Worcestershire Georgina Britten-Long, town Mayor Coun Mark Goodge and Mayoress Emma Goodge, town clerk Stuart Carter and several town councillors were also in attendance.

The Rev Mark Binney led the service, Sue Sollis MBE played the last post and reveille while the parade was led by Roy Bates, vice chairman of the Evesham branch of the Royal British Legion.
