Remembrance Sunday commemorations

 At 11am on 11 November, 1918, the guns stopped firing and the First World War was over. Exactly 100 years later, our churches marked that moment with Remembrance Sunday services across south-east Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. Many churches and schools also created special events or initiatives to commemorate the centenary of the Armistice. There were displays of hand-crafted poppies, special exhibitions within churches, and projects to discover more about local servicemen who died in the conflict. Catch up with details of our events and activities below.
