Remembrance events in Harrow were very different this year.
We were unable to attend the usual annual civic commemoration due to Tier 2 COVID restrictions but we (Cllr O’Dell and Cllr Proctor) were still able to pay our own respects by holding a very small service at the Wealdstone Memorial Clock Tower.
Representatives from the Our Wealdstone community group joined with us (socially distanced) along with a number of passer-bys, as we held two minutes of silence and read aloud The Ode of Remembrance.
It was our privilege to be able to lay a wreath (pictured) at the foot of the memorial on behalf of your Wealdstone Councillors, which now sits alongside another wreath from the Mayor of Harrow.
Although it was a very different Remembrance Sunday this year it was poignant nonetheless and we were all honoured to pay our respects to those from Wealdstone who lost their lives in the First World War.
We may have been separated this year but we look forward to a time when we can meet again as a community that values its past and is committed to working together for a better future.
