A special Centenary Service will be held at 3.00 pm on Saturday 10th November in All Saints’ Church, High Street, Banstead, to commemorate the servicemen and women who died in the war – especially the 143 whose deaths we have been remembering over the last four years at the ‘100 bells’ services on each anniversary. All are welcome to this Service, which will be attended by the Lord Lieutenant’s Military Deputy and The Worshipful the Mayor of Reigate & Banstead.
On Sunday 11th this year’s Remembrance Parade and Service will take the form of a longer procession, starting in The Horseshoe and concluding with the usual wreath laying service at the War Memorial.
Other events being planned include a display in The Orchard of poppies created by local schoolchildren, and posters/pictures remembering each Banstead man are to be displayed on lampposts or in shop windows in the High Street.
On Saturday 10th and the afternoon of Sunday 11th November an exhibition focusing on the service of Banstead men in the First World War will be held in the Church Institute.
