Remembrance services to commemorate the fallen servicemen and women of the two world wars onwards will take place across Waverley on Sunday 12 November.

The Mayor of Waverley, Councillor Simon Inchbald, will attend the Remembrance service at his local church, St Mary’s Church in Chiddingfold.

The Mayor said: “It is very important to remember those brave souls who have died in both the terrible wars of the past, as well as in recent conflicts. It also allows us to show our support for the armed forces as they continue to work to protect us.

“It’s a time to give our personal thanks to those who made sacrifices to defend us. I am honoured to be attending as Mayor and shall be welcoming crew members from HMS Chiddingfold, who will also be attending the service.”
