It was led by the Vicar of St. Mary’s Church, Rev. Ian Hill, from inside the Garden of Remembrance inside of the award-winning Argents Mead park.

Clergy and church members of different denominations and representatives from the Royal British Legion and Veterans Groups, Civic Leaders, and members of the local Guiding, Scouting, and Cadet Organisations all contributed to the service and parade.

Hinckley and Bosworth’s Conservative Member of Parliament, Dr. Luke Evans, was one of the notable attendees who observed and taken part in the remembrance service.

Coun. Dawn Glenville, Mayor for Hinckley and Bosworth, commented on the turnout.

She explained: “Our annual Remembrance Sunday service is always an incredibly moving, emotional occasion and I was honoured to be taking part on behalf of the borough.

“The Mead was filled with veterans, serving personnel, uniformed organisations and members of the public who come together to pay their respects and to offer their thanks for those who are currently serving, and to those who made huge sacrifices before us.”
