Today hundreds of local residents, school children, business owners, representatives from various organisations, and others came to the Boer War Memorial on Durham Road to take part in Low Fell’s Service of Remembrance.
Low Fell Councillor Daniel Duggan, who laid a wreath on behalf of Low Fell residents, said “I was deeply honoured to lay a wreath in remembrance of all the service men and women who have given their lives for our freedom. It was wonderful to see so many people there to pay their respects”.
Low Fell Councillor Susan Craig, who as Chair of Low Fell Forum laid a wreath on behalf of the Forum, said “Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to organise this important event, including the volunteers from the Low Fell Forum and the support from Gateshead Council, and which has allowed us an opportunity to reflect and remember together as a community. Thank you also to Rev Huw Sperring and Rev Alex Crawford, and the the Carlton Club for the wonderful refreshments after the Service”.
