Remembrance Sunday - November 11th 2018
This year to mark the centenary of the end of World War I the service in Walton had a record number of attendees with the police estimating up to 2000 Walton residents came along to remember the fallen.
Wreaths were laid representing various local groups including the Police, Surrey Fire & Rescue, the RAF, the WI and the Rotary as well as our local MP Dominic Raab and representatives of the Sea Cadets, Army Cadets and Air Corp. Our local Girguides, Scouts, Cubs & Beavers were also on form making the parade the longest in recent memory. The Oatlands Pipe Band lead us around the town in great style while the crowds lined the route. A day to Remember in all senses of the word.
