This year, Remembrance Sunday falls on November 14 – and will once again be an opportunity for the people of Petersfield to say a heartfelt thanks to those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

An assembly of uniformed organisations will gather at Swan Street car park at 9.45am ready to march to the square at 10.10am for the open-air service led by Petersfield vicar, the Rev Will Hughes, beginning approximately ten minutes later.

Petersfield Town Council armed forces champion Councillor Chris Paige said: “The parade will include the Petersfield branch of the Royal British Legion, the Combined Cadet Forces of Churcher’s College and The Petersfield School, The Petersfield Air Training Corps, members of the local Scouts and Guides and other organisations.”

On completion of the open-air service in the Square, the parade will proceed to the war memorial at the bottom of the High Street.

The Square and the High Street will be closed to traffic.

At the memorial there will be the sounding of The Last Post, two minutes’ silence and the laying of wreaths.

A roll of honour listing all those from Petersfield who have died in wars since 1914 will also be read out.
