Residents Watch Remembrance Parade
Residents of Edward Moore House in Gravesend honoured Remembrance Day on Sunday 10th November and watched the town’s annual parade.
Residents of the Trinity Road residential care home had a front row view of the local Remembrance Parade, as it departed right outside their front door.
The residents paid their respects and watched as the Mayor of Gravesham, Cllr David Hurley, led a crowd of cadets, scouts, brownies, councillors, members of Kent Police and more to Windmill Hill Memorial Gardens, where they paused in reflective silence.
Following the service, cadets, scouts and brownies continued the parade back through nearby streets, concluding the procession on Trinity Road. As the residents welcomed them back, some of the cadets came into the home for a chat.
Christine Hutchinson, Home Manager of Edward Moore House said: “Remembrance Day is of course very special for our residents, some of whom played significant roles during the war, or lost loved ones. It is very important for all of us to pay our respects and they thoroughly enjoyed watching the parade.”
