REMEMBRANCE SERVICES IN BURNHAM-ON-SEA and HIGHBRIDGE

REMEMBRANCE SERVICES IN BURNHAM-ON-SEA and HIGHBRIDGE

 

The Town Council is commemorating the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War with several acts of remembrance in the towns.

The Remembrance Day ceremonies will be taking place as follows on Sunday 11th November:

  • 11am at the memorial in Love Lane – parade starts at 10.30am at the B&M end of the High Street to the War Memorial Hospital for Minute Silence and wreath laying

  • 11am at Southwell War Memorial Gardens, Highbridge - Minute silence and wreath laying
  • 3pm service at St John's Church, Highbridge, followed by a parade to the war memorial in Highbridge for Minute silence and wreath laying.
    The Town Council has just paid to have the memorial cleaned.

Also on Sunday there will be a performance: Meeting Tommy Atkins at 4.30pm in the Princess Theatre. There are posters for this around the town.

Many young men of both Burnham-on-Sea and Highbridge lost their lives in the Great War and residents will show their respect for those who paid the ultimate price as well as honouring those who have fallen in battle in more recent conflicts. The Town Council has chosen to lay a plastic free wreath this year in keeping with its newly adopted Green Charter.
