Welwyn Hatfield held a virtual Remembrance Sunday service online to remember the fallen.

Mayor Welwyn Hatfield Cllr Roger Trigg said: “Thank you to everybody who joined our virtual Remembrance Sunday service.

“It was wonderful to see so many of you watching the video so that we could still remember together in these very challenging and difficult times.

“For anyone who missed the service, it’s still available to view on our Facebook page @welwynhatfield.”

The online service was led in prayer by the Reverend Jenny Fennell, Father Darren Collins, Deacon Linda Kinchenton and Father Norbert Fernandes and featured a rendition of ‘I Vow to Thee, My Country’ and a reading from St John’s Gospel by Mayor Trigg.
