Armed Forces Day

June 26th 2010

The Town Council once again put on a great Armed Forces Day Parade. They gathered in Furtherwick Park School Grounds (the school that is about to disappear) ready for the parade to begin.

You can see a video of the Parade here .


The service at the Paddocks was very well attended. The Rev’d Dave Pickett, Senior Minister of Thundersley Congregational Church and The Rev’d David Tudor conducted the service.

Georgia Garrett, the 16 year old Castle View School girl and winner of Canvey’s Got Talent contest 2009 sang Dame Vera Lynn’s ‘Now is the Hour’. You can watch the video here.

A minutes silence

The service was followed by a Civic Reception in the Paddocks where we had our display. We made lots of new contacts and enjoyed some refreshments.
