Ealing came together on Remembrance Sunday to commemorate those who fought and fell fighting for freedom

As the nation came together on Remembrance Sunday on 13 November 2022, residents , clergy, councillors and the armed forces across the borough commemorated and showed their respect to those who fought for the country in war and those who died in their fight for freedom.

Sunday saw parades and services to honour Remembrance Day in three towns across Ealing with Councillors and leaders from Ealing Labour, Ealing Liberal Democrats and Ealing Conservative political parties attending the various events.

In Ealing town itself, Mayor of Ealing, Councillor Mohinder Midha, attended the parade and service at Ealing Green War Memorial which is located in front of Pitzhanger Manor by Walpole Park.

In a tweet, the Mayor said: “Honoured to remember those who lost their lives for our freedom. You will never be forgotten.”

Liberal Democrat Councillor Gary Malcolm, leader of the Opposition on Ealing Council told EALING.NEWS of the importance of Remembrance Day: “Remembrance Day is very important as it is a chance to remind ourselves that around the world and especially in the Ukraine many thousands of people are needlessly dying. We need to find ways to avoid war and bring people together whether that be in our many communities in Ealing or wider afield.”

Earlier at the ceremony, Councillor Malcolm tweeted: “In Ealing’s #RemembranceSunday service to commemorate and reflect on those who sacrificed for our freedom during the wars. We Will Remember Them.”



Leader of Ealing Conservatives, Julian Gallant told EALING.NEWS of the importance of Remembrance Sunday: “This is an event which grows more important by the year. As the Bishop of Willesden so rightly said, it has nothing to do with triumphalism. It’s just the solemn recognition of sacrifice made by our forefathers for our freedoms, and the fervent hope that there can one day be a universal peace.”

Ealing Central and Acton MP Dr Rupa Huq tweeted: “Poignant #RemembranceSunday parade and service with great reading from Lusa Nesenga @Lustherev Bishop of Willesden in Ealing today. Honoured to lay a wreath at war memorial.”

Councillor Julian Gallant, leader of Ealing Conservatives tweeted: “@Ealing_Tories ⁩ today proudly and solemnly remember the sacrifice of all who died for the sake of peace and freedom.”

At Greenford Broadway , the local branch of the Royal British Legion marched to Greenford War Memorial from its headquarters in Oldfield Lane South for a public service. This was attended by Deputy Mayor, Councillor Hitesh Tailor along with Ealing Council deputy leader Councillor Deirdre Costigan.

Ealing North MP James Murray tweeted: “Today our local community came together for a moving and very well-attended Remembrance Sunday at Greenford War Memorial. Thank you to everyone who came there today, everyone involved in the parade and service, and to the Royal British Legion for welcoming us afterwards”.

In Southall, residents gathered in Manor Park at the Southall War Memorial where in attendance wass previous Mayor, Councillor Munir Ahmed.

Councillor Ahmed tweeted: Honour to lay wreath at #Southall on behalf of Ealing with ⁦@VirendraSharma⁩ MP and other @StJohnChurch @EalingCouncil @VisitSouthall ⁦
@WaddingtonRBL⁩. We will remember them!”

Ealing Southall MP Virendra Sharma tweeted: “t was my honour to attend the Remembrance Sunday service at the Southall War Memorial today, remembering all those who fought for us. It was lovely to see so many, including the Mayor of Ealing, paying their respects. Thank you to all those who came.”
