Rickmansworth Town Remembrance Sunday Service and Act of Remembrance
Sunday 10 November at 2.30pm
This Service gathers together people across the generations to remember those who have fallen in the fields of conflict in which our nation has been involved.
Having only last year commemorated the conclusion of the First World War – the ‘war to end all wars’ – this year we mark the 80th Anniversary of the outbreak of the Second World War.
The Town Remembrance Sunday Service is preceded by the Remembrance Sunday Parade which sets off from Our Lady, Help of Christians, the Roman Catholic Church, at 2.00pm. Members of local uniformed organisations will be taking part.
After the service, we will move outside to the War Memorial for the Act of Remembrance and the laying of poppy wreaths.
All are welcome to attend.
