Never forgotten

Thousands of people have attended Remembrance Sunday ceremonies across Redcar and Cleveland on the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.

Dozens of parades and wreath-layings have taken place at cenotaphs, war memorials, schools and other community spaces across the borough all week.

However, most of the commemorations took place on Sunday 11 November, including the Pages of the Sea event on Redcar beach which involved an image of a First World War soldier being washed away by the sea and readings of a specially commissioned poem by Carol Ann Duffy.

Eston cenotaph and surrounding square was refurbished in time for the parade and ceremony held this morning at an event attended by politicians of all parties. Another major service was held at St Leonard’s Parish Church in Loftus followed by a parade from the Town Hall to the war memorial.

Mayor of Redcar and Cleveland, Councillor Dennis Teasdale, took part in the Redcar Service which included a parade and wreath laying on the cenotaph. He said: “This has been a special year and it was very moving that so many people, including our young people, have attended these events right across our borough. Men and women served from each and every one of our towns and villages in Redcar and Cleveland. They will never be forgotten.”

Another remembrance event was also held in Boosbeck today (Monday 12 November), at Lockwood Primary School cenotaph.
