The mayor, Tony Hunt, said: "Thank you to our Town Cryer and Deputy Mayor Angela Standing and to everyone else who contributed to the organisation of this year's Remembrance Sunday service.

"What a relief it was to have a proper well-attended service again after last year's attenuated event, and I think that everyone who attended felt that same sense."
