Remembrance Sunday service

Buckinghamshire Council’s Remembrance Sunday wreath-laying service will take place in Aylesbury’s Market Square on 13 November 2022, with the service starting at 10:45am.
This continues the tradition of a Remembrance Day wreath-laying service in Aylesbury, the county town.

Chairman of Buckinghamshire Council, Councillor Dev Dhillon, will lead the service dedicated to remembering armed forces members who have died in the line of duty. He said: “It’s vitally important to publicly honour all those who have fallen in defence of our country in past wars and other military conflicts. Without their selfless dedication and sacrifices, the values and freedoms we cherish so much, would have been lost. We will never forget.”

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 Cadets.

The service includes an introduction by Father Doug Zimmerman, a reading by Aylesbury Branch of RBL Vice Chairman Mr Brian Morris, the playing of the Last Post, two minutes silence, the bugle call Reveille, familiar hymns and readings by other civic dignitaries.

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