Over 500 residents turned out in Arundel for a Service of Remembrance at the War Memorial in the Town Square on Sunday 13 November.
Arundel Town Council’s Mayor Tony Hunt and Macebearer Iain Stirling led a procession of Councillors, the Town Clerk, the Choirs from St Nicholas Parish Church and Arundel Cathedral, Royal British Legion standard bearers and MP Andrew Griffith.
The service was conducted jointly by Canon David Twinley of St Nicholas and Canon David Parmiter of Arundel Cathedral.
Pupils from St Philips and Arundel Church of England School read original poems and the town’s Guiding and Scouting groups laid wreaths together with wreaths from civic, service and association representatives.
‘The Last Post’ and ‘Reveille’ was played by bugler Ian Kingshot with additional musical accompaniment from the band led by Nigel Searle.
Mayor Tony Hunt said, “Thank you to everyone who participated in this years’ service to commemorate the brave men and women who gave their lives for the freedoms we enjoy today. Thank you to our Deputy Mayor and Town Crier Angela Standing, who led the organisation of the service.”
Thank you to our hard-working community volunteers who gave up their time to marshal at the service.
