Remembrance Sunday, 11th November
A national event is taking place on Sunday 11th November 2018 to mark the day 100 years ago when the guns fell silent at the end of the First World War.
This day of remembrance will commence at 6 am at the War Memorial in the Braintree & Bocking Public Gardens when along with 1000 other pipers across the UK a piper will play the Retreat March – The Battle’s O’er as a tribute to the millions who gave their all for our tomorrow in the Great War
You are welcome at this special Centenary Service to remember all those who gave so much in two World Wars and in conflicts since, for us to live in peace.
