Remembrance Sunday 20158th November 2015

The rain held off for an extremely well attended Remembrance Sunday parade and church services. 230 Squadron ATC joined the people of Congleton and representatives of many other organisations in a poignant and respectful tribute to the men and women who gave their lives in service to our country. Cpl Cooper made a moving recital of 'In Flanders' Fields' from the cenotaph and the Cpl Lea laid a wreath on behalf of the ATC.               (More photos in gallery)
