Each year a Remembrance parade is held at the war memorial, with a service at the church of St Peters and St Pauls headed by the Eye Town Mayor. It takes place on the nearest Sunday following the 11th of November.
Remembrance Day is a memorial day observed in Commonwealth member states since the end of the First World War to honour armed forces members who have died in the line of duty. Following a tradition inaugurated by King George V in 1919, the day is also marked by war remembrances in many non-Commonwealth countries.
Remembrance honours those who serve to defend our democratic freedoms and way of life.
