Memorial events in Windsor and Slough – Photo 1 of 1

The fallen will be remembered when Windsor and Slough hold memorial services this week.

The Windsor Worship Service will be held at the War Memorial on Windsor High Street in front of the Parish Church of St John the Baptist on Sunday 13 November and will be attended by Deputy Mayor, Councilor Gary Muir.

This will begin at 10:50 a.m. and the national two-minute minute’s silence will be observed at 11:00 a.m.

The services will be organized in partnership with nearby branches of the Royal British Legion who will be in attendance along with SX service, uniform and youth organizations who will attend the wreath laying ceremony.

The ceremonies will be followed by the usual service at Windsor Parish Church.

The Mayor, Councilwoman Christine Bateson, said: “I invite all residents to attend our services if they are able, and join us in remembering those who sacrificed so much for freedoms in past wars or conflicts have that we enjoy today.

“Also, this year’s Poppy Appeal was recently launched, so please remember to show your support by donating to the appeal and wearing your poppy with pride.”

In Slough, a service begins at 10.40am on Sunday in the town square in High Street, leading to St Mary’s Church in Church Street for the main service and wreath-laying ceremony.

In the event of rain, there will be no activities in the town square and the service will begin at 10:50 am in St. Mary’s Church.

Other memorial services will be held in smaller communities in East Berkshire and South Bucks this week. See the parish and parish websites for details.
