The Last Post and Reveille was played by Ben Wood from the 2 Rifles Regiment.

A poem was read by the Mayor, Councillor Linda Nulty:-
In Flanders Fields
In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the Crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago We live, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were Loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields.
Take up your quarrel with the foe; To you from failing hands we throw The torch be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields. John Macrae
