REMEMBRANCE SUNDAY 2019

On November 10th the community of Chiddingfold are invited to come together at 11:00am in an Act of Remembrance at the War Memorial at St. Mary’s Church.

The laying of Wreaths at 11:00am will be proceeded by a Service of Remembrance at St. Mary’s Church, which starts at 9:30am.

Ahead of the Service there will be a Parade of the village uniformed groups led by CPO Sean Garrett of the Royal Navy from the Village Hall to the Church.  The parade is a new aspect for this year’s events and will include the Crew of HMS Chiddingfold who are joining the village for Remembrance Sunday this year in almost full complement. 

The Parade begins at 9:00am and all are invited to watch this special event. 

To allow for the safe progress of the parade and the Act of Remembrance at the War Memorial, there will be road closures on the morning of 10th November.  Signs will be in place the week before and further details will be published on the Parish Council website and on notice boards around the village.

After the service there will be a reception in the Village Hall, with displays of local history in relation to Parish Remembrance, art work from the children of year 6 of St. Mary’s School and the Village Nursery.  HMS Chiddingfold will have displays about the ship and its work and the new crew are looking forward to meeting residents ahead of their next deployment.

All are welcome to join this free event from 11:15am.  Refreshments will be served courtesy of the Chiddingfold Women’s Branch of the Royal British Legion.

There will be a collection in support of the Ship’s Welfare Fund.

 

HMS Chiddingfold is one of 6 remaining Hunt Class Mine Countermeasures Vessel (MCMV) in active use by the Royal Navy and the largest built ever built from Glass Reinforced Plastic.  The affiliation between the village and HMS Chiddingfold goes back over 30 years.
