Harleston butchers carry on proud annual tradition with Remembrance Day display
An annual wreath display has been proudly displayed in the window of a butchers shop once again in preparation for Remembrance Day.
D A Browne & Sons, which is on The Thoroughfare in Harleston, has been collecting wreaths and displaying them on behalf of the community for almost two decades.
Manager Andy Orford said: “It must be 17 years now, I think, and it was started by Roger Browne, who died in March of last year.
“We lay a wreath at the war memorial each year, along with other businesses and charities, and we’re glad to be able to keep them here in one place and display them.
“We have had 42 this year, which is a record, and it’s great for us to be involved in this way.
“When we had a refit last year, we had lights put in so the display can be illuminated at night.”
The wreaths were collected in the days leading up to the parade and service, and were laid on Sunday.
