Felixstowe Town Council, the Felixstowe branch of the Royal British Legion and local clergy jointly arrange Remembrance Services for the town.
This year, on Armistice Day Saturday 11th November a two minute silence will be observed at 11am at the War Memorial, Undercliff Road West. Last year many of our local schools sent young representatives to participate in Armstice Day, however it falls on a Saturday this time a separate moment of reflection will be held at the War Memorial on Friday 10th November for the schools.
The Civic Remembrance Service will be held at St Johns Church, Orwell Road, Felixstowe at 9.45am on Sunday 12th November 2017. All are welcome.
After the church service, everyone will gather for the Act of Remembrance at the War Memorial around 10.50am prior to the observance of two minutes’ silence at 11am. Wreaths are laid by the civic party who then receive a march past the Town Hall from the uniformed services.
Following the Civic Remembrance services on Sunday 12th November, a short service will also be held at Felixstowe Cemetery, Langley Avenue at Midday.
All are welcome to attend these commemorative events.
