A local councillor has ensured a remembrance service will take place at the Wanstead War Memorial this month.

Former members of the now-closed Woodford and Wanstead branch of The Legion have organised the event since the 1960s, but due to ill health, Councillor Colin Cronin and other members of the community have now taken charge.

The service on 12 November will commence at 12.30pm.

A two-minute silence will also be observed at 11am on 11 November at the Snaresbrook Road Garden of Remembrance.
