November 11, 2018, marked one hundred years since the guns fell silent on the Western Front at the end of the First World War. During a week of commemorations, people and organisations from towns and villages across the district lit beacons, laid wreaths and took time to remember the fallen - the millions of men and women who lost their lives - on the battlefields and the home front. Beacons, which symbolised an end to the darkness of war and a return to the light of peace, were lit on Regatta Meadow, St Neots; the Market Square, Huntingdon; St Judiths Lane, Sawtry; The Green, Eltisley, All Saints Church, St Ives. Sunday saw representatives and dignitaries from across the area lay wreaths at war memorials. Parades also took place in some towns and villages, including St Neots, Ramsey, St Ives and in Wyton, where the RAF Wyton Area Voluntary Band led the proceedings. Bells were rung at several churches and a production of Oh What a Lovely War was performed at the Commemoration Hall, in Huntingdon.

Mr Digby said about 400 people had attended the parade and service, including former pupils of Kimbolton School, cubs, brownies, scouts, and cadets, as well as members of the public.
