Members of Newquay Towan Blystra Lions joined together with the local community, to pay their respects and remember those that so selflessly gave their lives for their country, with a special remembrance day parade, service and wreath-laying.

Groups and organisations were well-represented in the events. These included both the Police and Fire services, the Royal British Legion, HM Coastguard, Newquay RNLI, and Newquay Hospital League of Friends amongst others.

Youth organisations represented included local Guides, Brownies, and Scouts, as well as Police Cadets, Air Cadets and Army Cadets.

The parade set off from the Fore Street Car Park, and led by St Austell Town Band processed to St Michaels Church. Reverend Cannon Michael Adams then led a service of remembrance.

Meanwhile, at 11 o’clock a number of members of the public gathered at the town’s war memorial to pay their respects, and observe a two-minute silence.

The service congregation later also convened at the memorial, which overlooks Towan Head. Representatives from the local groups laid their wreaths as a mark of respect, who were watched over by the standard bearers.
