To mark the passing of Armistice Day on 11th November, Belong Crewe, on Brookhouse Drive, invited members of the public to join them for a special remembrance service.
Performed by Reverend Ken Sambrook, the service brought together members of the local community with representatives from
South Cheshire Pensioners Association
(Formerly Northern Pensioners Association Crewe & District),
the War Veterans Society, the Cheshire Regiment and the British Red Cross.
Reg Reeves and Allen Gallimore, who both served during World War II and now live in Belong Crewe, wore their medals with pride during the evening.
The Crewe Royal British Legion marched to bugle music during the service, with Lieutenant Matt Styles from the British Army, the Sea Cadets Band and Royal Air Force Cadets also in attendance to commemorate those members of the armed forces who were killed during war.
Melanie Saywell, General Manager of Belong Crewe, said of the event:
“We were very grateful to everybody that attended the service at Belong, to help us pay our respects to the brave servicemen and women that sacrificed their lives for us during war.
Many of the people living in Belong Crewe were personally affected by World War II, and the service was an opportunity for us to express our thanks and honour those who fought on our behalf.”
