    It is very sad and disrespectful, in my opinion, that the Epsom Clock Tower Memorial Plaque (“In Memory Of Those Who Died In The Service Of Their Country”) is frequently blocked from view by the market traders when they set up their stalls. I have no doubt that won’t be the case when the Mayor and Councillors turn up in their robes on Armistice Day!
