TENBURY will be remember the dead servicemen from the town and the surrounding area that gave their lives in two world wars and in other conflicts since.

Supporters of the Royal British Legion have been out in the town centre and surrounding villages to raise as much money as they can to help the charity in its work with members of the services and their families.

There will be commemorations in the town on both Saturday and Sunday.

The Armistice Two Minutes Silence Ceremony will take place in front of the Regal Cinema, Teme Street, at 11am on Saturday. This will mark the ending of the First World War at the eleventh hour on the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1917.

Then on Sunday the Remembrance Parade will assemble at Tesco Market Square at 10.05am and will march to from there to St Mary’s Church at 10.20am. Wreaths will be laid and there will be a service of Remembrance.

Tenbury has an active Royal British Legion branch and a book written about the contribution to the First World War made by men from the town and surrounding area.

There is a War memorial in the grounds of Tenbury High School.
