Remembrance Service in the Square, Sunday 11 November 2018

The parade and service were blessed by blue skies after some very heavy rain earlier in the morning.. 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 Lesley Farrow, Mayor of Petersfield.
