People in Great Yarmouth will have the opportunity to honour British soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice in the First World War in our Fields of Remembrance.

Our Fields of Remembrance campaign has seen us join forces with Norwich Cathedral, King's Lynn Minster, Great Yarmouth Minster and the Royal British Legion to commemorate the centenary of the end of the First World War.

We are encouraging people to buy and place a wooden-backed poppy at the Minster to pay a personal tribute to our war heroes.

The crosses will be available from the Minster coffee shop next week between 10am to 3pm and from the Great Yarmouth Mercury office in King Street.

Rev Canon Simon Ward, of Great Yarmouth Minster, has encouraged people to take part in honouring the soldiers sacrifices.
