Local-Care-Homes-Host-Services-for-Remembrance-DaySoap Star, Territorial Army and Community Join Staff and Residents In Remembering The Fallen

Residents and staff at two care homes in the North East honoured those who lost their lives during the First and Second World War by holding moving memorial services.

Ingleby in Stockton-on-Tees and Queens Meadow, in Hartlepool, each laid wreaths and held a two minute silence to commemorate the individuals who fought for their country in battle.

Those who attended the service at Queens Meadow were joined by former Emmerdale star Dale Meeks, who performed songs from World War I and II to help residents remember and pay their respects to those they lost during that time.

Members of the Territorial Army also attended the emotive event, which took place on Monday 10th November.

Residents and staff at Ingleby welcomed members of the community as they released special commemorative balloons to recognise loved-ones at their service on Tuesday 11th November.

Liz Jones, Customer Relations Officer at Hill Care, said: “Watching the balloons travelling high above the homes, hearing the music and seeing the Territorial Army at the events helped our residents to remember and honour those that they knew and lost.

“It is always important for us to remember those who died in the line of duty, and we are thankful to the members of the community who were able to join us at the ceremonies and help us honour all those who lost their lives.”
