A wreath-laying ceremony was held at Tower Gardens in King’s Lynn to mark the 100th anniversary of the Royal British Legion.

Representatives of the King’s Lynn and District branch and outgoing West Norfolk Mayor Geoff Hipperson placed wreaths at  the war memorial to mark the centenary.

Nationally, the Royal British Legion (RBL) will be holding celebrations throughout the year to reflect on its achievements and look forward to the future. 

On its website, the RBL said it has “always been supported by a network of volunteers, members, fundraisers, and corporate partners who share our passion for bringing people together to support, commemorate and celebrate our Armed Forces community”.

Reverend Canon Father Adrian Ling conducted a service last Saturday at Lynn and RBL branch committee members also laid a wreath at Gaywood memorial.
