Remembrance Service in the Square, Sunday 12 November 2017

The parade and service were blessed by a bright but very cold day. There was a good attendance by townspeople, uniformed groups and, of course, members of the British Legion.

The service was lead by the Rev'd Canon Will Hughes, vicar of St Peters, the reading was undertaken by Cmdr Clive Lewis, Chairman of the Petersfield Royal British Legion and the prayers were red by Cllr Jamie Matthews, Mayor of Petersfield.
