A PARISH council has appealed for a band and bugler to perform at a Remembrance Sunday event.

The 60th anniversary of the end of the Second World War is to be marked with a special ceremony in Langley Park, County Durham, on Sunday, November 13.

The band would lead the parade to the village war memorial, with the bugler playing the Last Post.

Esh Parish Council clerk Mike Ackroyd said: "There's been a problem finding a small band and a bugler, there's obviously a lot of call for their services on such an occasion."

Anyone offering their services would be required from about 10.30am and can contact Geoffrey Smith on 0191-384 6031.
