The Mayor and children from the four Hadleigh schools visited Hadleigh cemetery to pay their respects to the soldiers who died in both world wars and are buried in the town’s cemetery. The children received a talk on the significance of remembrance from Mark Brennan, Chairman of the Hadleigh Branch of the Royal British Legion. The children went on a tour of the war graves and were told about the men who had died and the effect this had on the town. The children placed poppy crosses on each grave. Before departing, a wreath was laid and a moments silence observed to remember all those from the town who gave their lives in the service of their country.
