Mayor Loraine De Simone said: “Although Cramlington was not able to mark Remembrance in the way we normally do I was pleased that people were able to pay their respects while adhering to government guidelines. Residents have already laid wreaths and tributes at the War Memorial over the last few days and I thank them for doing so. They have created a very poignant tribute. It was an honour to have the Lord Lieutenant here today joining in with the simple ceremony that showed Cramlington remembers “
