Wreath-laying marks Armistice Day in Chertsey

Dr Llewelyn accompanied the Mayor of Runnymede Cllr Elaine Gill, Councillors from Surrey County Council and community groups in laying wreaths to mark Armistice Day, also known as Remembrance Day.

The wreath-laying ceremony was held at the war memorial in front of St Peter’s Church in Chertsey in memory of those who died in conflicts.

The Mayor laid a wreath on behalf of Runnymede Borough Council, resident Councillor Mark Nuti laid one on for SCC, and the High Sheriff’s paid respects to veterans and the emergency services.

The dignitaries joined the public in observing the traditional two-minutes’ silence at 11am.
