Prayers were said before The Last Post sounded at 11am and a two minutes’ silence was immaculately observed.

Wreaths were then laid by dignitaties including deputy Lord Lieutenant Stuart Birlett before the civic party and clergy, followed by the parade, moved to the town hall where Mayor Ivor Dixon took the salute.
