WAR heroes past and present will be honoured today at Remembrance Day services in Crow Country.

The Royal British Legion event remembers those who have died in conflicts around the world.

In Royston, the Remembrance Day parade will, as usual, depart from the British Legion Club, in Queens Road, at 10.45am, before assembling at the war memorial at Priory Memorial Gardens for a service of remembrance.

Swing band Opus 17 will be performing a selection of big band classics at the British Legion Club after the service.

In Melbourn there will be no parade to the village war memorial this year.

Chairman of the Melbourn and Meldreth branch of the legion, Patrick Parkinson explained: "Due to the retirement of our parade marshall we will no longer be marching to the church and war memorial.
