Annual Remembrance Sunday Parade

Ponteland People turned out in force to pay tribute at the Annual Remembrance Sunday Parade and Service. The parade left Ponteland Leisure Centre as usual and travelled down Callerton Lane and along Main Street before turning up Darras Road to the Memorial Hall.A short service was held during which wreaths were laid by local dignitaries, the Royal British Legion, representatives of H.M. Forces and local youth groups such as Scouts, Boys Brigade, Guides and Brownies.After the service the parade marched back to the Leisure Centre where participants were thanked and local organisations were invited to the Diamond Inn for light refreshments.
