Local band Transmission Interrupted entertained the crowds before the start of the walk and on their return Elvis Tribute artist Paul Richie brought the audience to their feet with a great show.

The 1st Caterham Scouts were kept busy providing the refreshments and there was a memory tree for people to attach notes to for whom they were walking for.

Uniformed groups of all ages took part in the Annual Remembrance Day Parade that took place on Sunday 8th November 2009.

Following the service and laying of the wreaths they marched back to Caterham Ex Serviceman’s Club for refreshments.

The Annual Firework Display took place on 7th November 2009 in the field adjacent to Caterham Dene Hospital in Church Road.
