The 2010 Remembrance Day parade and service took
place on Sunday, 14th November. The parade from the Ash Centre to

Union Flag was carried by representatives from The Scouts Association.
The local dignitaries were led by Surrey Heath
MP Michael Gove, Chairman of Ash Parish Council Councillor Nigel
Manning, Clerk of the Council Carole Olive and other members of
Ash Parish Council. They were joined in the parade, by members of
other uniformed organisations, and members of the University of
the 3rd Age.
The Service of Remembrance was jointly conducted
by Father David Buckley and Reverend Keith Bristow.
Councillor Nigel Manning led the wreath laying
ceremony. Followed Michael Gove MP and represenatives from the local
uniformed organisations and members of U3A.
The North East Hampshire Area School Band provided
the accompanying music, with three buglers sounding the evocative
Last Post and Reveille. Tim Edwards of the St. John Ambulance Brigade
once again efficiently marshalled the Parade.
Following the service, the parade returned to the
Ash Centre where the salute was taken by Councillor Nigel Manning
and Michael Gove as the various contingents marched past.
Before final dispersal, Councillor Manning thanked
all the individuals, groups and organizations that had contributed
towards and attended the event.
Tea and coffee were then served in the Ash Centre
by members of Churches Together.
