South Holland paid its repsects to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for us all at a number of remembrance services across the district over the weekend.

Our photographer attended as many as he could, including Pinchbeck on Friday, where pupils from the village primary school joined in during a dedication of the memorial bench before a service.
