Mid Sussex remembers the fallen

Have your say

Young people were out in force on Sunday at Remembrance services across

Mid Sussex. Their presence was an enduring symbol that the sacrifice made by servicemen and women across the generations will never be forgotten.

Services were held across the district including in Haywards Heath, Burgess Hill and Hassocks.

In Haywards Heath The Rev Ray Smith conducted the memorial service on a Remembrance Sunday which fell on the exact day the guns fell silent in the Great War.

In Burgess Hill, residents had donated poppies through a “People’s Wreath” organised by the town council and Cynthia O’Neil placed a wreath on the memorial to commemorate the animals and carrier pigeons who had lost their lives, mainly in World War One.

Among the crowds at all the main events were former servicemen, whose courage in preserving our freedom shone in their medals.
