Spilsby will join national commemorations honouring the armed services on Remembrance Sunday

Members of the Royal British Legion Spilsby and District Branch will gather for a parade of standards in the lower Market Place at 10.15am.

The march to St James’ Church will take place at 10.30pm, wreaths will be laid at the war memorial from 11.30am following the service of remembrance.

On Remembrance day, November 11, the branch members will gather around the Sir John Franklin statue to observe the two minutes silence and playing of The Last Post and Reveille. It is hoped all the town will come to a standstill. A maroon will be fired to signal the start and finish of the silence.

From there the members, accompanied by school pupils and clergy will go the cemetery to lay wreaths on the graves of the war dead.
