Littleport Remembers

Remembrance Day dawned like any other this year – and the citizens of Littleport were ready to attend the special November service as usual. Although there was no march through the village, cancelled due to the pandemic, the leaders and members of Littleport’s many organisations and groups still mustered at the parade’s objective, the War Memorial on the green opposite St George’s.
Organised and conducted by Littleport Royal British Legion Branch President Garth McGowen, the single-persons only wreathlayers were placed at strategic intervals in a queue; while all those attending were socially distanced around the periphery.
Littleport Brass were represented by James Stygall who played the poignant Last Post as the St George’s tower First World War Memorial Clock struck 11 am, followed by the rousing Reveille to end the Two Minutes Silence.
Among those walking forward with their poppy tributes was (pictured) the Right Rev Nick Brown of the Littleport Christian Spiritualists NCSS Church, Mr Adi Keating Chair of the Littleport Ex Servicemen’s Club, Mr Mark Robinson President of the Littleport bikers 363MCC, Ms Julie Double for the Scouts, for Guiding Ms Lauren-Elise Terry and young footballer Tay Morgan for Littleport Rangers.
