This year, Remembrance Sunday falls on the 12 November. In Godalming, we will gather at the Phillips Memorial ground by the War Memorial at 10.50 am for the Remembrance Day ceremony. A Service of Remembrance will follow this ceremony in the Parish Church of St Peter & St Paul at 11.15 am. Anyone wishing to join the parade should be at Waverley Borough Council’s car park at 10.15am prompt to march off at 10.20am.
After the service, the Parade will process down the High Street and then, instead of the usual route down Bridge Street, the parade will go down Great George Street. The Mayor will take the Salute outside the Pepperpot at the top of the High Street.
During the week prior to Remembrance Sunday, there will be a public collection organised by the Royal British Legion. We ask everyone to support this most generously in order that the Legion may continue not only to help those who have been permanently disabled by war but also their families when necessary. As is the custom in Godalming, the Mayor and Town Councillors will help with this collection at Sainsbury’s Godalming on Saturday, 11 November from 9.00 am until 4.00 pm.
