The two-minute silence will start at 11am on the first stroke of the Town Hall clock, at the memorial in Chapel Road, after which the mayor’s chaplain, Major Sarah Evans, will take the service.

Worthing mayor Sean McDonald, accompanied by the Lord Lieutenant of West Sussex Mrs Susan Pyper, will lay poppy wreaths and take the salute at the march past in front of the Town Hall after the service, at approximately 11.30am.

Worthing’s Salvation Army Citadel Band, led by bandmaster Alan Slator, will play during the service and lead the march past.

Mr McDonald said: “I am extremely proud and humbled to represent my town and I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to the many local organisations from Worthing and further afield who continue to support our annual Remembrance service and parade.”

Schoolchildren have contributed to an exhibition of poems which is located in the Town Hall foyer. The free exhibition will be open from 9.30am to 4.30pm from now until Friday, November 18.
