A series of Remembrance events will be held in Southwold next week.
The town mayor of Southwold, Michael Rowan-Robinson, is inviting people to join him in laying a cross in tribute and remembrance at Southwold War Memorial at 10.50am next Thursday, November 8.
A two minute silence will then be observed at 11am.
On Sunday, November 11, at 6am, a lone piper will play on the Southwold Town Hall balcony. At 10.30am members of Southwold Town Council and local organisations – led by the Southwold and Reydon Corps of Drums – will parade from the Market Place to the War Memorial in Bartholomew Green, for the laying of wreaths at 10.40am.
At 11am, a service of remembrance will be held at St Edmund’s Church in Southwold, before the church bells echo out at 12.30pm.
Then at 6.45pm on November 11, the beacon will be lit at Gun Hill as Last Post is played, before a cry for peace around the world goes out from the Southwold town crier.
