Remembrance Sunday in Pinner – 13th November 2016

In glorious autumn sunshine on the morning of Sunday 13th November a large crowd of Pinner residents gathered at the Pinner War Memorial at the top of the High Street for the annual Remembrance Sunday Service. The Service was conducted by clergy from the local denominations and faiths, and over forty wreaths were laid by our MP Nick Hurd, representatives of armed and wartime services organisations, local councillors, the Police, Fire Service and St John’s Ambulance, local schools and Scouts and Guides, local community organisations and sports clubs.
