The war memorial in the Carfax in Horsham town centre will once more be the focus of this year’s Remembrance Sunday service this weekend.

The service will begin at 10.50am led by the Rev Guy Bridgewater, after the arrival of the parade when the service will begin with the hymn ‘O God Our Help in Ages Past’.

The Parade Marshall will call the Parade to attention and they will then march to St. Mary’s Church in the Causeway, Horsham, for the service to which everyone is welcome.
