Town pays respects to fallen - The Evesham Observer

Town pays respects to fallen

Evesham Editorial 18th Nov, 2018   0

MEMBERS of Pershore’s Royal British Legion were among those taking part in number of events to remember the fallen across the town.

The Armistice Day service began at the Cross of Sacrifice in Pershore Cemetery.

Pershore’s Remembrance parade then moved off from the Asda car park led by the RAF Cosford Voluntary Band but this year saw no act of remembrance in Champman Court.

A Remembrance Day service took place at the Wick War Memorial and the last post and a lighting of beacon at Holloway Hill was held as day turned to night.




Sunday also saw a stained glass window at Pershore’s Cemetery Chapel unveiled to mark the finale to an ambitious £49,000 fund-raising bid to commemorate the end of the First World War.

The window will feature images related to both world wars and a centre panel showing Pershore at peace thanks to the sacrifice of all those who served in the conflicts.


After the window was dedicated, visitors were able to view the poignant tribute to those who gave their lives.
