CHRISTCHURCH will be hosting a number of Remembrance Day services and parades on Sunday. 

A service at Purewell Cross War Memorial will start at 9.15am where the mayor of Christchurch will lay a wreath. 

The Remembrance Parade will start from the Royal British Legion in Bargates at around 10am before making its way to the Priory via Christchurch high street. 

Before the Priory service, a wreath-laying ceremony will take place under the direction of the Royal British Legion at 10.15am at Priory’s Garden of Remembrance. 

Priory Church’s service will start at 10.50am and will finish at 11.50am. 

Cllr Viv Charrett, mayor of Christchurch, said: “The Remembrance Day parade and services are for the whole community to remember those who suffered and died in the first and second world wars and all conflicts thereafter.  

“We welcome everyone along to these services and to watch the parade, so please regard this as in invitation to all to come and join in at the service.  

“The Priory is particularly welcoming and inclusive when it is full of people, and I hope to see as many of you as possible there.  

“It is also very inspirational to see all the young people in the various cadet groups, joining in and parading with the veterans, and representing Christchurch so well.”
