Members of the Warsop and Meden Vale and District branch of the Royal British Legion gathered at the Cenotaph to pay their respects this morning (November 9)

Prayers were said and hymns were sung in a moving tribute to those who lost their lives in both World Wars.

It was especially poignant as 2018 marks the Centenary of the end of the first World War.

Deputy Lieutenant Colonel David Sneath, president of the Warsop and Meden Vale and District branch of the Royal British Legion said: "It's incredibly important that those that laid down their lives are respected and remembered.

"People will have left these houses to go to war, and never come back.

"Some came back and returned to work in the pits."

Bill Power BEM played the The Last Post before a silence was held and the wreaths were laid.
