A remembrance service in honour of those who gave their life serving the country is to be held this Sunday.

The traditional Remembrance Sunday ceremony, which falls on November 12 this year, takes place at the Harrow War Memorial, outside the Civic Centre in Station Road.

A parade, led by the Glen Trew Pipe Band, will leave St Ann’s at 10am before making its way to the memorial for 10.45am.

Cllr Margaret Davine, the Mayor of Harrow, will lead the service, where she will be joined by dignitaries, servicemen and women, veterans and youth organisations.

There will be a two minutes’ silence at 11am to remember those who “gave their today for our tomorrow”.

The winning poems from the ‘Schools Remembrance Day Poetry Competition’, which involved schools from across Harrow, will also be read out during the service.

Cllr Davine said: “This is a time for us to pay our respects to the men and women in our armed forces and thank them for their bravery and sacrifices to give us the freedom so many of us take for granted.

“It is also a time to reflect upon those caught up in and affected by current conflicts.

“This Remembrance Sunday, I hope that you will all join me to remember our fallen heroes, and support the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal by wearing your poppy with pride.”
