This year’s Remembrance Service at St Mary’s Parish Church will take place on Sunday 14 November at 3pm.
Wreath laying is at the War Memorial at the Church (2.50pm).
Preceding the Wreath laying there will be the usual march through the town. The march will be led by the Standards and then by the Scouts and Guides, however, if anyone wishes to join at the end of the column that would be good. The assembly place for the march will be at the Waitrose bus stop in Old Mill Drive at 2.15pm. Once everyone is ready, the step off will be at 2.30pm going into the High Street then into Church Street and finally mustering at the bottom of the stairs leading up to St Mary’s. Poppy wreaths will be laid at the War Memorial at 2.50pm under the direction of the Storrington Branch chairman of the Royal British Legion, Willie Shackell.
It is the Royal British Legion’s centenary year: the Storrington Branch were one of the founding branch members in 1921 and during the Service we will dedicate our new Standard.
