On Sunday, November 14, churches and Royal British Legion branches across the country will be hosting memorial services to commemorate the end of the First World War.

It is also the 100th anniversary of both the Royal British Legion and the inaugural Poppy Day.

Moreton will not be hosting a parade as the council says it has not been able to find a band while adding that there is a lingering concern around the Covid situation however a service will be held at the War Memorial on the High Street.

A parade will take place in Bourton and local veterans are invited to meet at the Legion Hall at 10:30am with the march beginning at 10:45am.

Stow was set to host a parade however that has now been cancelled.

Elsewhere in the Cotswolds, Chipping Campden's Remembrance Service will take place at 10:30am at St James Church followed by a parade to the War Memorial at 11:30am where another short service will take place.

There is also a service taking place at the War Memorial on Broadway High Street from 10:45am.

Shipston will host one of the more unique memorials on Sunday thanks to a giant screen which will broadcast the service live.

Usually, only those in St Edmund’s Church can observe the service but now Shipston Town Council have hired a big screen to ensure no one misses out, with funding provided through the Welcome Back Fund.

The screen will be temporarily installed on the High Street, where the parade will march down on the day, and people are invited to start gathering from 10am, once the road has been closed to traffic.

On arrival at the War Memorial, wreaths will be laid, the names of the fallen read out by Shipston High School prefects and the two minutes silence observed.

People can then go into the church, where masks will be mandatory, or return to the High Street to watch the service on the big screen, before watching the parade return and fall out.
