Traffic was temporarily halted while a crowd gathered outside the Parish Church in Windsor to commemorate those who fought and died in the Battle of Britain in the Second World War.
About 50 people watched as a squad of air cadets from the Royal Air Force Association marched from Park Street to the church in the High Street yesterday before laying wreaths on the war memorial.
“Let us remember with thanks giving those who gave their lives so that we might live,” were the words of Reverend Ainsley Swift to the silent crowd.
A service then took place in the church and the Mayor of the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, Cllr Richard Kellaway, delivered a speech acknowledging that the sacrifice of those who died will be remembered for generations to come.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
Further details have been revealed over how many trains will be running in Slough, Windsor and Maidenhead during planned rail strikes later this month.
