Pier pays tribute to fallen

Clacton Pier joined hundreds across the town in honouring the service
and sacrifice made by those who laid down their lives for their country.

It paid its own tribute on Remembrance Sunday to those men and women who
have died in numerous conflicts around the world.

The attraction’s front screen displayed a giant red poppy field instead
of its normal advertising.

The pier also put on free coffee, tea and biscuits for all serving or
former service men and women throughout yesterday.

Just yards away, at the war memorial on the Upper Promenade, a large
crowd of all ages and organisations gathered for the annual service.

Communications manager Nigel Brown said the pier is proud to play its small
part in honouring all those who have defended our freedom over many decades.

“There is always a fantastic turnout at the memorial in Clacton and it
seems to grow every year,” he added.

“It is very important to commemorate the sacrifices made by so many and
it must never be forgotten.”
