The Co-op store in Conging Street has supported the Horncastle and District Royal British Legion by sponsoring a Remembrance event on Tuesday, September 3 at the War Memorial Centre (6.30pm).

The event marks the 80th anniversary of the start of WW2.

After a short service, there will be a candlelit vigil.

Julian Millington, the Chairman of Horncastle and District Royal British Legion said, “During the planning of the Remembrance event I met Rebecca Grice, the Horncastle Members Pioneer from Horncastle Co-op.

“I explained what our Remembrance event entailed and she suggested that the Coop could provide the necessary candles for the event.

“This is a very generous gesture and we are grateful to Rebecca and her team.

“We hope to work together at events in the future.”

Rebecca added: “We are pleased to support-the Royal British Legion at this event.

“I hope we will be able to work together again. As an organisation we are looking to support local groups however we can.”
