Armistice in Bermondsey

Armistice Day began in Bermondsey with the St James School Armistice service in church, with all the children standing in respectful silence for the two minutes silence.

Next up was the service at the War Memorial in West Lane (left), attended by the Mayor, the Leader of the Council, councillors, prospective parliamentary candidates for Labour and the Liberal Democrats, the Pearly King and Queen, alongside representatives of the emergency services, tenants association, community organisations, political parties, London Southbank University, schools, local businesses and many members of the public, for the two minutes silence at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.

We sang, we prayed, we remembered.
