Weston-super-Mare will again fall silent 12th November at 11:00am to remember those who have served the country through our Armed Forces. Grove Park will be packed with thousands of people for Remembrance Sunday.
A parade of cadets, military personnel – past and present – scouts and guides will set off from the High Street on Sunday at 10.25am, accompanied by a band.
A service, featuring hymns, wreath laying and the national anthem will follow.
A two-minute silence will be observed at 11am.
People attending the service at Grove Park are asked to print off or even better read from their phone an order of service, which can be found here – Remembrance 2023-Order of Service to ensure there are enough copies for everyone and to save the environment.
A field of remembrance will be set up to the right of the war memorial, where people are allowed to leave tributes to the fallen. However, organisers ask that this is not done during the service.
