Remembrance Sunday is on the 11th November this year and will mark the centenary of the ending of World War 1.
To commemorate this particular anniversary, we will be having an extended program this year at Sandringham church.
At 6am, a lone piper will stand outside the church and play 'When the battle is o'er', (a classic retreat march) as an unique tribute to this special day. There will also be services at Castle Rising and Wolferton.
At 11am we will start out Remembrance Sunday service at the War Memorial, with an Act of Remembrance before returning to the church for the rest of the service.
At 6.50 pm (the exact time of the end of the war) we will have an Act of Remembrance outside Sandringham church with a bugler to play the last post. This will be followed by the lighting of a beacon in the park as part of a national program of Beacons. We hope that someone from each of our parishes will be there so that all the names of those who died from the Sandringham Group of Parishes can be remembered there.
