From Debbie Semper: “My neighbour joined the forces when he was 16-years-old. He was very disappointed today because he was going to be in the parade, so his wife asked the neighbours in our close in Washingborough to join them at 10.45am to hear his stories and to have the 2 minute silence with him. It was such a lovely thing to see.”
