The Remembrance Sunday parade formed up at the Market Place for 10.30am and then set off to the town's war memorial which is off Broad Street for a wreath laying ceremony.

The war memorial lists the names of 97 men who died in conflicts, with 73 from the First World War and 24 from the Second World War.
