For the first time, Woodbridge Probus Club was invited to take part in the Annual Remembrance Day service at the Woodbridge War Memorial on Market Hill. The chairman, Ray Hooper, took part laid a wreath on behalf of the club. The event took place on 11th November 2018 and marked the 100th anniversary of the WW1 armistice. The parade assembled in Theatre Street and then marched the short distance to Market Hill. A large party of representatives from various organisations in Woodbridge then gathered in the small memorial garden. At 11:00 am a rocket launch and the sounding of the Last Post marked the beginning of the 2 minutes silence. Another rocket launch followed by the sounding of Reveille marked the end. The names of more than 100 services personnel on the war memorial were then read out. 67 wreaths were then laid by the Woodbridge representatives gathered in the garden.
A multi-denominational service was then held outside the Shire Hall on Market Hill.
It was a privilege to be asked to take part in the event and the club will most likely be attending the event in the future.
