Details have been released of how Salisbury will remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country this Remembrance Sunday.
There will be a service at the War Memorial in Salisbury Market Place on Sunday 14th November from 11am with the ceremony led by the Salisbury Branch of the Royal British Legion and supported by Salisbury City Council.
Everyone will gather at the War Memorial for a 2 minute silence at 11am followed by prayers.
Following this, a parade will march along New Canal, where Deputy Lieutenant Mrs Minette Batters accompanied by the Mayor Cllr Caroline Corbin, will take the salute. The parade will then process to St. Thomas’s Church for the Sunday Service at 11.40am. All are welcome to attend this service.
