Loughton Remembered

A sombre and moving Remembrance Service was held on Sunday 12 November 2023 at the war memorial on Kings Green, Loughton.

Hundreds of local residents joined the annual parade, leaving the Royal British Legion Headquarters (Loughton Branch) at Church Hill. The procession, which was a wonderful sight, included representatives from The Royal British Legion, Churches Together in Loughton, the Air Cadets, Scouts, Guides, Brownies and Rainbows together with ex-service men and councillors.

Town Mayor, Councillor Mick Stubbings led the tributes on Kings Green for the service and the two minutes silence marking the anniversary of this day in 1918 when the guns finally stopped at the end of the First World War.

Loughton Town Council also held a two-minute silence at the War Memorial on Kings Green and Members of Staples Road Primary School Council and children from Chrysalis Day Nursery laid their poppy wreaths ahead of the weekend services. They were joined by the Town Mayor, Cllr Mick Stubbings, together with residents from Woodland Grove Care Home. We thank Richard Williamson representing the Loughton Royal British Legion and Reverend Chris Davies for their contribution to the event.
