Things we like about smalltown living Pt.2

Remembrance Sunday

There's something heart-warming, not to mention gripping, about smalltown remembrance services. Maybe it's the scouts struggling to hold their flags up, maybe it's the sound system that doesn't really work that well, maybe it's the buglers who can't quite keep together during the last post, and just maybe it's the feeling that there's enough people present to whom the names on the memorials actually mean something.

When the flags get dipped, though, more than a lump comes to our throats.

What Ilkley does well.
