Remembrance Sunday services, St Ives and Lelant
The first of the parish Remembrance Services was held at St Uny Church in Lelant in the morning of Sunday 9 November. Later at the War Memorial in Lelant, poppy wreaths were laid, including a wreath laid on behalf of the town council by Deputy Mayor Tamsyn Williams, pictured below. In this 100th anniversary year of the start of World War I, each of the Remembrance Sunday commemorations had a high attendance of organisations and individuals.
Slightly later in the morning, the Remembrance Parade organised by the St Ives Royal British Legion formed up at the St Ives Guildhall. Expertly led by Camborne Youth Band, the uniformed organisations including ex-service personnel, the RNLI, police and fire services marched to the St Ives War Memorial, with local scouts, guides and cadets and followed by the Mayoral party which included town councillors, the St Ives & Hayle MP and town organisations.
At the War Memorial the St Ives Royal British Legion led the proceedings, with wreaths laid by the Mayor and then all the organisations represented. Two minutes silence was observed to remember all who had been killed or injured in conflict. The Last Post was played by Debbie Knapp.
