The Church in Mil Palmeras saw hundreds of people gather to honour the memory of soldiers lost to war

The Mayoress of Orihuela, Mónica Lorente, the Mayor of Pilar de la Horadada, Ignacio Ramos, the councillor for Orihuela Costa, Jose Antonio Aniorte, and the British Consul in Alicante, Janine Lamont, among others, attended this year's celebration of Remembrance Sunday, held at the Mil Palmeras Church this sunny but windy morning.

Also present at the event were representatives from the Royal Naval Association, the Royal Marine Association, the Royal Air Force, and the British Legion Branches.

The celebration was organized by the Orihuela Costa and District Branch of the Royal British Legion, formed last year, who acknowledged the help and support of the Mayors and Town Hall staff of Orihuela and Pilar de la Horadada, as well as the assistance and support of the Clergy and congregations of the Church at Pilar de la Horadada, in particular the congregation of the Capilla de Mil Palmeras, for allowing them the use of their Chapel.
