The City of Salisbury is set to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice at its Annual Remembrance Sunday Service at the War Memorial in Salisbury Market Place on Sunday 12 November 2017 from 10.45am.
The Remembrance Parade will start at Castle Street and will have representatives from the serving local regiments, veterans and cadets.
Everyone will gather at the War Memorial for a 2 minute silence at 11am followed by prayers. The parade will then process to St. Thomas’s Church for their Sunday Service.
During 2017, Salisbury City Council have been encouraging City residents to get involved and make poppies for the ‘Salisbury Remembers’ Project.
Thousands of poppies have been made by local people from recycled drinks bottles, crocheted or knitted to create a fabulous display on the front of the historic Guildhall in the centre of Salisbury Market Place.
The poppies display will be in place from Monday 6 November until Thursday 16 November.
The Leader of Salisbury City Council, Cllr Matthew Dean said, The ‘Salisbury Remembers' Project has been a fantastic example of community spirit, Salisbury has made over 10,000 poppies in this poignant display, we as a Council are honoured to be able to show our support for the Armed Forces with both our display and our Remembrance Service. I thank all those local people who have got involved.”
