Letter: Remembrance Day was well respected

May I, through the medium of the Advertiser, thank all the good people of Ilkeston who attended the Remembrance Day service at the cenotaph on Sunday November 10.

May I also thank all those organisations that paraded in the Market Place under the directions of the Royal British Legion and also Ilkeston Brass who provided the music.

This is in contrast to the services which were held at 3 pm as previous. The people of Ilkeston have responded magnificently to having this service at the proper time (11 am) and putting it back in its proper context.

It is so sad that it has taken so long and so much energy to put this matter right.

Cllr Frank Phillips,

Ilkeston Central ward.
