King’s Lynn fell silent at 11am on Remembrance Sunday to pause, reflect and remember the fallen.

Led by West Norfolk Mayor Harry Humphrey, a procession  of around 50 people took place from King’s Lynn Town Hall to the war memorial in Tower Gardens.

The Royal British Legion, local veterans’ associations, military charities, cadet forces, representatives from local faith groups and societies were all represented at the poignant service.

North West Norfolk MP James Wild and Paul Bland, representing Festival Too, were among those to lay a wreath at the memorial.

Tony Williams, the deputy lieutenant of Norfolk, laid a wreath representing the Queen, who missed the service at the Cenotaph in London after spraining her back.

Although Sunday’s service was not a “closed event” which was put in place last year due to the pandemic, it was live-streamed again for people to watch at home, if they were unable to attend or concerned about coronavirus.
