Residents paid their respects to fallen heroes earlier this month despite the cancellation of Remembrance Sunday commemorations.

“It was heartening to see people come to pay their respects at Wanstead’s War Memorial throughout the day, as well as those who stood on doorsteps for a two-minute silence. It was important we avoided congregating and I’m pleased residents respected that. With plans to have the memorial cleaned next year, I hope to return to our usual service next November,” said Colin Cronin.
