LEDBURY will truly remember this Sunday, November 11, for the centenary anniversary of the end of the First World War.

There will be a poignant Act of Remembrance, including a parade, at Ledbury’s war memorial in the High Street, beginning at 10.30am.

All the names of the Ledbury servicemen who died during the First and Second World Wars will be read out.

This will be followed by a service in St Michael and All Angels Church, where a poppy display and representation of the trenches has been created, with a named poppy for each of Ledbury’s fallen.

A parade will lead people from the war memorial to St Michael and All Angels, where the service will be led by the Revd Keith Hilton-Turvey.

The Deputy Lord Lieutenant James Hervey-Bathurst will be in attendance.

An address will be given by Revd Bill Mackenzie, Ledbury’s Royal British Legion chaplain.

At the end of the service the bells will ring a full peal, and church bells will also be ringing out all over the country to commemorate 100 years since the Armistice was signed.

Inside the church, the fifth in the series of exhibitions produced by local historian Jennifer Harrison about Life in Ledbury during the First World War will be on display until Tuesday, November 13.

Mrs Harrison said: “These exhibitions have always featured what was happening here in Ledbury whilst the men, and one woman, were away ‘over there’.”
