Church packed for Axminster Service of Remembrance
Axminster turns out in force to remember the fallen
THE people of Axminster turned out in force to wear their poppies with pride on Sunday.
They joined members of the Royal British Legion and local unformed organisations to parade to the parish church for the annual service of remembrance.
Afterwards the exhortation was read on the Minster Green by Legion secretary John Vanderwolfe, before the laying of wreaths.
Standards were carried by RBL members Douglas Hull, Alan Brown and Leanne Rowley.

He said: “We were especially pleased to see so many younger people this year both at the remembrance service and the two minutes’ silence on Thursday. It is very encouraging.”
