Potters Bar residents turn out for Remembrance Sunday
HUNDREDS turned out to pay their respects at a Remembrance Sunday service in Potters Bar yesterday.
At the war memorial in High Street, residents, politicians and war veterans came together to remember those who gave their lives in the First and Second World Wars, as well as other conflicts past and present.
People young and old joined in the traditional two minutes’ silence to remember Britain’s war dead, while wreaths were laid at the memorial.
Hertsmere MP James Clappison and deputy mayor Peter Knell were among those paying their respects.
Cllr Knell said: “It was very well attended and very well organised, There was a lot of people from Potters Bar who came to it, and lots of councillors did as well.
