Newmarket remembers

Across Newmarket today, citizens and dignitaries honoured our veterans and the 400 local soldiers who served and sacrificed their lives for our freedoms. Remembrance Day ceremonies began with a candelight vigil at Veterans' Memorial Park last night, included a parade and service at the Cenotaph, and church bells ringing 100 times in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War at sunset, and ended with a special Battle's Over event tonight at the Cenotaph.
