Cllr Paul Darrington Mayor of Swanley said “It was great to be able to get back to our Swanley tradition of the parade, wreath laying and Church service.

It was an honour to be part of this commemorative event.”

Assistant Town Clerk Toni Roast said “It was great to see so many people turn out for the parade and wreath laying, with some staying for the Church service although numbers where reduced this year as a knock on effect of COVID-19.”
