COMMUNITIES across the New Forest, including Ringwood, came together to mark Remembrance Sunday.

Services were held followed by a parade through the town which made its way to the War Memorial Garden.

There was a short service and formal act of remembrance as well as the laying of the wreaths.

Ringwood Mayor, Cllr Tony Ring said: "Ringwood community spirit was very much in evidence both at the Armistice Day service on 11 November and Remembrance Sunday 14 November when after a church service celebrated by a full capacity congregation.

"The annual parade to the War Memorial was attended by an estimated 400 plus persons who joined with a further silent reflection following a bugle sounded Last Post then after reveille many local organisations and individual wreaths and tributes were laid around the memorial.

"Thanks are due to the church dignitaries, Ringwood Town Council members and officers and a wonderful group of volunteers who organised and managed a truly memorable event’

Crowds also lined the streets of Fordingbridge for a Remembrance Sunday parade through the town to St Mary's Church for a service followed by the two minutes' silence.
