More than 2000 people attended Remembrance Sunday commemorations, services and parades across Havering to remember those who lost their lives and to honour their sacrifices.

Services and parades took place in Romford, Upminster, Hornchurch, Elm Park, Harold Hill, Harold Wood, Rainham and Ardleigh Green.

Councillor Linda Van den Hende, the Mayor of Havering, laid a wreath on behalf of Councillors and staff at the service held in Romford’s Coronation Gardens following the parade led by the Royal British Legion Band and Corps of Drums Romford.

Councillor Roger Ramsey, Leader of the Council, said: “No one plays a greater role in keeping us safe than our Armed Forces and these services gave us a chance to remember the servicemen and women past and present.”
