HUNDREDS of people packed into Belper as the town fell silent on Remembrance Sunday.
Mid-Derbyshire MP Pauline Latham and Belper Mayor Cllr Alan Cox laid poppy wreaths in the town’s Memorial Gardens, on King Street.
A parade then made its way through the streets to a service at St Peter’s Church, on Chesterfield Road.
Veterans and army cadets, alongside members of the public, were among the many who paid their respects to Britain’s war dead.
In Kilburn, local Scouts and Brownies, and a brass band took part in a parade that started on Bown Close and went to the village’s war memorial. It was followed by a service at the village’s Baptist Church.
