11 Nov 2018 10:55 - 18:55 at Market Square

Eynsham’s traditional non-denominational Act of Remembrance on 11 November will take place at 10:55 in front of the War Memorial. This will be preceded by the usual parade of uniformed groups starting from the Scout Hall in Back Lane and leading to their church parade service in St Leonard’s at 10:00.

The church congregation leaves the church at 10:45 to be joined by the congregations of the other two churches and as many members of the village as possible to observe the two-minute silence in memory of all those who have given their lives in war in service of their country.

In addition this year, to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the 1st World War, in the early evening there will be activities in the Square and in St Leonard’s Church culminating in a reading of the Roll of Honour at the War Memorial and snuffing of candles at about 18:55 as the Legion arranged in 2014. At 19:05 the bells will be rung along with those in churches throughout the county.
