Two Uckfield Remembrance dates for your diary

Two Remembrance events are being organised in Uckfield by The Royal British Legion. They are the firing of maroons to mark Armistice Day and a parade through town and service at Holy Cross Church on Remembrance Sunday.

The first maroon will be fired at Uckfield War Memorial at 11am on Saturday, November 11, marking the start of two minutes silence to commemorate those who died in the two world wars and later conflicts.

The silence begins every year at the time guns fell silent on the western fron at the end of World War 1, in 1918. There will also be a short service at the war memorial.

On Remembrance Sunday, November 12, a parade will leave Luxford Field Car Park at 2.35pm and make its way to Holy Cross Church for a service, via Civic Approach, Uckfield High Street, and Church Street.

The Remembrance Service will begin at 3pm with wreath laying at the memorial, and the playing of the Last Post, taking place after the service which is expected to finish at 3.50pm.

The parade will re-form at 4.10pm and return to Luxford Field Car Park via Library Way, where the Mayor of Uckfield, Cllr Louise Eastwood will take the salute.
