Louth Town Council - Working with the community to make Louth a better place to live and work

“On this Remembrance Sunday, as we always do, we take the time to stop and reflect on history as well as considering all of those from our community and beyond that have given so much in the service of the the nation. Having not had the opportunity to hold any formal commemorations in 2020 due to the restrictions in effect at that time as a result of the pandemic; it was especially important that we had the opportunity to come together again this year to mark this Remembrance Sunday in a solemn, dignified and appropriate manner. I am particularly pleased that one or two new aspects to our traditional parade and service at the War Memorial came together so well to help frame the occasion and set the scene for the well-established routines. I thank all of those who were so supportive and helped to incorporate these ideas into the service. I would also like to thank all of those involved in making this morning’s events run so smoothly and without whose time and efforts that they give so generously, we simply would not have such a memorable and fitting occasion each year. I thank the Louth & District Royal British Legion for their ongoing support and collaboration in particular but wish to extend my thanks to the many young people on parade this year from our town’s cadet contingents and youth groups, who are there for our veterans to pass on the baton of remembrance to in the years ahead. Finally, I would like to thank the community in Louth for joining us is such abundant numbers this year to mark this important occasion.” Councillor Darren Hobson – Mayor of Louth.
