VIDEO: Why buying a poppy is so important

There is still time to buy a poppy from a number of collectors that will be dotted around Worthing until Sunday’s Remembrance services.

The town will be remembering the tragic loss of life during and following the two world wars and other conflicts when the annual Remembrance Service and march past will take place at the War Memorial in Chapel Road.

The two minutes silence will start on the first stroke of the Town Hall clock at 11am after which the Mayor’s Chaplain will conduct the service.

Mayor Bob Smytherman accompanied by the Vice Lord Lieutenant of West Sussex will lay wreaths for the fallen and take the salute in front of the Town Hall at approximately 11.30am after the service.

Cllr Smytherman said: “I am extremely honoured and proud to represent the town and pleased that so many organisations from Worthing and further afield continue to support the Remembrance Service and Parade.”
