Basingstoke and Deane will come together as one to remember the war heroes that bravely served their country next month.
Friday, November 11 will represent 98 years since hostilities were ended between the Allied Forces and Germany in the First World War.
And the borough council will pay their respects on Armistice Day by marking the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month with the observance of two minutes’ silence.
The ceremony at the War Memorial, in London Road, will also see Basingstoke and Deane’s mayor, Cllr Jane Frankum, lay a wreath in honour of Britain’s servicemen and women on behalf of the council.
A parade and Remembrance Sunday service will then place two days later, with a procession taking place from Carston’s car park at 10.30am to the memorial, via New Road.
Road closures will be put in place at Victoria Street, Hackwood Road, London Road, and New Road, while the parade takes place, before wreaths will be laid, and a service will be led by the mayor’s chaplain Arthur Botham.
Anyone is welcome to attend the remembrance events, and leave their own poppy crosses in remembrance of relatives or friends, with the mayor urging people to come and pay their respects.
“It is so important that we remember the sacrifices made by all our armed forces, in order that future generations are able to live in peace and freedom,” said Cllr Frankum.
“This is so personal to me, as my grandfather and brother served in the Army. “My grandfather in the First World War, and my father did nearly 28 years’ service, including serving during the Second World War.
“He was a founder member of our current Red Berets in 1942, and my late husband was a civilian worker at RAF Odiham.”
The mayor also encouraged the public to buy a poppy, and “wear it with pride”, to help support military charity the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.
She added: “Anyone who would like to come along and pay their respects at either of these events is indeed very welcome.”
