People from Driffield and the Wolds fell silent to remember and pay tribute to the servicemen and women who have given their lives during wartime conflict.

In Remembrance services across the area, a two-minute silence was observed and wreaths were laid to honour the fallen.

On Sunday, a Service of Remembrance was held at All Saints’ Parish Church in Driffield.

The church service was preceded by a parade along Driffield Middle Street to the Parish Church led by the Pocklington Pipes and Drums band.

Serving personnel and veterans joined representatives from Driffield Town Council, Ex-Service Associations, Welfare, police and support services, Cadets and members of the Guide and Scout movements and St John Ambulance to take part in the parade.

All Saints’ Church was filled to capacity for the service which was led by Rev Stuart Grant, and lessons were read by Driffield Mayor Cllr Mark Blakeston and High Sheriff Jacky Bowes.

After the service, a two-minute silence was observed and 31 wreaths were laid at the war memorial in the church grounds.

Wreaths were laid by Deputy Lord Lieutenant Lynne Hope, High Sheriff Jacky Bowes, Mayor Mark Blakeston as well as the Armed Forces, Service Veterans Associations, public services, charities, social and support groups and youth organisations.

Bugler Luke Gledhill played the Last Post and Reveille and the parade marshal was David Southall.
