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.
