A parade and service was held on Sunday at Harby to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the Hose and Harby branch of the Royal British Legion.

Branch president Graham Shipman welcomed Jennifer, Lady Gretton, Lord Lieutenant of Leicestershire as the guest of honour. After a service at St Mary the Virgin Church, Lady Gretton took the salute as the colourful parade of local branch standards and Legion members marched from the church to the war memorial.
