County’s Remembrance Sunday service

Buckinghamshire Council’s Remembrance Sunday wreath-laying service will take place in Aylesbury’s Market Square on 14 November 2021, with the service starting at 10:45am.

This continues the tradition of a Remembrance Day wreath-laying service in Aylesbury, the county town.

Council Chairman, Cllr Zahir Mohammed, will lead the service to remember our armed forces. He said: “No public events were possible for Remembrance Day in 2020 due to the pandemic and the national restrictions put in place, so it is wonderful that this year we can publicly honour all those who have fallen in defence of our country in past wars and other military conflicts.”

Also attending the service will be representatives from the British Army, Royal Air Force, Royal Navy, Royal British Legion, Ellesborough Silver Band, veterans and community organisations including the Scouts, Brownies and Army Cadets.

The service includes an introduction by Father Doug Zimmerman, a reading by Royal British Legion President Ray James, the playing of the Last Post, two minutes silence, and the bugle call Reveille.

Residents are welcome to come along to the event and pay tribute to our fallen heroes.

While this event is being arranged by Buckinghamshire Council on behalf of the county, there are also many local events being held up and down the county. Check your local community website to find out what is happening near you.
