SOLEMN tributes were paid to the fallen this weekend as people across the borough took part in Remembrance Sunday.

Services took place in Ealing, Greenford and Southall as Ealing council and The Royal British Legion organised a host of activities honouring those who died for their country.

Mayor of Ealing Barbara Yerolemou attended a service at 11am on Sunday at the Memorial Gates in Ealing Green. Those present observed a two-minute silence and there was a march past with music by the Balmoral Highlanders and the Capital Concert Brass.

The Greenford Remembrance parade, the largest in the borough, took place at 10am outside the Royal British Legion building in Oldfield Lane South.

Charlie Doherty, chairman of Greenford RBL, said: "I think it was very good. On the march I would say there were about 400 or 500 people. The service attracted between 200 and 300 people, some of whom were veterans who were unable to march and some of whom were the general public.

"We had a large turnout of cadets, scouts, guides and other youth groups, and it was wonderful to see the younger generation's involvement in the act of remembrance."

There was also a service outside the Manor House in The Green, Southall, conducted by Reverend Mark Poulson from St John's Church.

Former mayor of Ealing Ian Green attended and there was a procession from the memorial to St John's Church in Church Road.

Hammersmith and Fulham observed its own services of remembrance. Borough mayor Alex Karmel joined the march from Sulgrave Road to an open-air service at the war memorial at Shepherd's Bush Green.

A parade took place in Fulham via New Kings Road, making its way to an open air service at the Fulham War Memorial in Vicarage Garden.
