Wear your poppy with pride this weekend
BE SURE to wear your poppy this weekend as Remembrance Sunday services are held to honour the fallen of two world wars.
This year’s event falls on Sunday November 8 and will be especially poignant as 2015 makes the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain as well as 70 years since VE Day (Victory in Europe) marking the end of the Second World War.
However the day is also intended to remember all of those killed while serving their country.
Remembrance in Hillingdon will begin at St Margaret’s Church with a service and Holy Communion in the chapel at 8.30am, followed by a Civic All Age Parade at 9.30am and an Act of Remembrance at the Peace Memorial at 10.50am.
There will be a Parish Memorial Service at 4pm and then an evening service at 7pm.
A Remembrance Sunday service will take place at Eastcote War Memorial on Field End Road from 10.40am to 11.20am.
The British Legion will also hold a march from Hilligdon Fire Station to St John’s Church, Hillingdon Hill for a wreath laying service in Church grounds.
Harefield Amateur Dramatics Society will perform ‘Journey’s End’ to remember those who fell in the Great War of 1914-18. This event takes place from Wednesday November 11 to Saturday November 14, 7.30pm at St Mary’s Church Hall, High Street, Harefield. Tickets cost £9.50 for adults, £7.50 for concessions (Thursday only).
