Dozens of people braved the torrential rain to take part in a parade through Cromer ahead of a Remembrance service in the parish church.

Hundreds of worshippers packed in to the church for the service which was conducted by the Rev Peter Herbert, the curate.

The church’s assistant minister, the Rev Jennie Hodgkinson, also took part in the service alongside John Davies, from Cromer Baptist Church, and Deacon Shirley Hassall, from Cromer Methodist Church.

Several wreaths were then laid at the war memorial. Among those to lay a wreath was North Norfolk MP Norman Lamb.

Town councillor David Pritchard also announced that a four-year fundraising campaign to pay for the repair of the war memorial had been successful. Work on the memorial will start on Tuesday, November 14. He said he was very excited to give the people of Cromer the good news.

“There will be a re-dedication and unveiling of the renovated war memorial this time next year,” he said.
