Town councillors, youth groups and residents came together in Dunmow on Remembrance Sunday to honour those who have given their lives in conflicts.
Yesterday (November 10), a parade progressed through the centre of town before finishing at the war memorial, where a service, to commemorate the fallen, was led by Reverand Lea Williams.
Cadets, brownies and other youth groups took part in the parade while The Great Dunmow Town Band accompanied the service.
The Mayor of Great Dunmow, Councillor Emma Marcus, laid a wreath at the memorial and she was joined by fellow district and town councillors, including Alexander Armstrong and Patrick Lavelle.
After the laying of the wreaths, the parade marched on to the Dunmow United Reformed Church, where a second service took place.
