Commemoration Ceremony 2012

Representatives of East Berkshire College were invited to attend the Commemoration Ceremony at the Memorial Gates in March 2012.

Virginia Barrett, Deputy Principal, Curriculum & Quality, commented: 'It was an amazing experience reflecting on the contribution that Commonwealth soldiers played in the Second World War. The memorial service and diverse range of people involved truly honoured this history as we embrace the future. I was proud to be in attendance.'
