Pause and Remember…

Having updated the website today and with remembrance day upon us, I felt it would be a wise idea to check around town for any upcoming events and see what sort of things were going to be happening.

I was able to visit the Poppy Appeal (Royal British Legion) office on the town square and talk to the lead chairman who informed me of the various things happening (which I should not forget to mention are all on the Downhamweb calender presently).

This morning Downham Market among other places all across the UK participated in silence as they paused to remember the many men and women who served, and did not return…
This Sunday (November 13th 2011) a Remembrance Parade and Salute will also be happening in Town Hall Car Park in addition to today s event.
Downhamweb urges you to come along if possible and remember those who are lost, but never forgotten. IMG_4904e.jpg Downham Market Poppy Appeal Collection provided by The Royal British Legion Downham Market.
