Laying a Wreath on behalf of Huntingdon Town
We Will Remember Them
On behalf of the residents of Huntingdon

Huntingdon will always remember the sacrifice made by those in all wars, the current Covid restrictions mean we could not hold large scale services, but it is important that the day is marked as best we can.
