A parade in Hendon during Remembrance Sunday

The Mayor of Barnet led a service for Armed Forces veterans and their families to mark Remembrance Sunday.

Cllr Alison Cornelius held the service at Hendon War Memorial on Sunday, Novemeber 14, which followed a parade through Hendon.

Ahead of the Remembrance Sunday service, Mayor Cornelius paid tribute to the people of Barnet who have served in the Armed Forces:

She said: “On this Remembrance Sunday, let us take time to show our gratitude to those who have served our country to protect our freedoms and way of life. The history and people of Barnet are closely associated with the Armed Forces. Today, we are home to three Army units, 11 cadet units and 9,000 veterans.

“Each year, Remembrance Sunday gives us the opportunity to pause and reflect on the huge sacrifice that so many have made over the years by laying down their lives not only in the two World Wars, but also in recent conflicts.

“This year, the Royal Family will be leading the Nation’s tribute at the Cenotaph. As Mayor of Barnet, I have the enormous privilege of leading the borough’s tribute at Hendon War Memorial. Many of my colleagues will also be laying wreaths all around the borough.

“Let us all join together in praying for peace and tolerance in our increasingly fearful and divided world, as we face the future together.”

Parades also took place in High Barnet, New Barnet and East Barnet.
