Remembrance Sunday Service will go ahead

poppies1QUESTIONS were asked at the Haverfordwest Town Council meeting on Wednesday evening over who should pay for this year’s Remembrance Sunday service.
It was agreed that the march on November 10 must go ahead but town councillors queried whether the Town Council should bear the whole cost for the event.
The debate centred around a number of roads which may have to be closed to allow the event to run smoothly.
Councillor Peter Lewis said: “If the County Council wants to close the road, it must charge the Royal British Legion.
“We should not be paying for the road closures”.
Father Paul said “We’re doing all that we can with our limited funds to support the Royal British Legion”.
Councillor Alan Buckfield said that he would be prepared to pay to close the roads if the worst came to worst but said “We shouldn’t have conflict over road closures with the County Council over what is a very important day”.
Deputy Mayor Roy Thomas said “We, as a Town Council, must ensure the event goes ahead”
Councillors agreed that they would discuss the matter further in the near future.
