Remembrance Sunday

Two members of the local dignitary commemorating Remembrance Sunday

On Remembrance Sunday we remember and honour those who sacrificed themselves to protect and secure our freedom. There is a Church Service held at St. Andrew’s Church and a two-minute silence held at the War Memorial at the Market Place as a public act of remembrance. The two-minute silence, held each year at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, marks the end of the First World War.

The Armistice, an agreement to end the fighting of the First World War began at 11am on 11 November 1918. In addition to Remembrance Day on 11 November each year (Armistice Day) we host an act of remembrance on the front steps of the Town Hall.
