The mayor of Welwyn Hatfield, councillor Barbara Fitzsimon, deputy lieutenant Anthony Chapman and Welwyn Hatfield Council director Nick Long, attended a service at the Howardsgate Memorial yesterday.

The service started with a parade from The Campus to the town centre, with representatives from all of the services, ex-servicemen and women and youth organisations.

Organised by the Royal British Legion and the council, it was also accompanied by the Welwyn Garden City Town Band.

Barbara said: “It was incredibly moving to attend services in the borough yesterday, and to remember all those who lost their lives in two world wars and subsequent conflicts.

“It was particularly poignant because it marked the 100th anniversary of the Armistice.

“We owe so much to so many, for the sacrifices made by those who fought and the impact it had on their families and the world we live in today.

“It was an honour to attend services alongside councillors and residents to remember the fallen.

“I’d like to thank the many organisations that played a part in the services and special events; it was wonderful to see our communities come together in solidarity and respect.”
