Haywards Heath Town Council will once again be organising the Remembrance Sunday Service for the town at the War Memorial on Muster Green on Sunday 11th November. This years’ service will be especially poignant as it falls on the 100th anniversary of the end of WW1.
The Service will begin at 10.45am to observe the 2 minutes’ silence at 11.00am. Conducted by Reverend Ray Smith, the Remembrance Service will be attended by local dignitaries and Councillors, members of the armed forces, the Royal British Legion, youth organisations, local groups and members of the public. Music will be played by Haywards Heath Concert Brass. All are welcome to attend.
Attendees can also take time to visit the wonderful ‘River of Poppies’ which proudly sits on Muster Green in a tribute of 10,000 handmade poppies to mark the lives of the soldiers who lost their lives in WW1.
These poppies will then be available, with a certificate of authenticity, in exchange for a donation in the Gazebo at Muster Green on the following dates and times:
- Sunday 11th November 2018: 12pm-3pm
- Monday 12th November 2018: 12pm-3pm
- Tuesday 13th November 2018: 12pm-3pm
All donations will benefit the Royal British Legion and the Mayor’s Charity, the Dame Vera Lynn Children’s Charity.
