A two-minute silence will be led from the Guildhall balcony on the High Street. The Mayor will be joined by Guildford Borough Council Leader, Cllr Paul Spooner, and Managing Director James Whiteman. A maroon will be fired from Guildford Castle to mark the beginning of the two-minute silence at 11am and to signal the end the period of quiet reflection.

The exhortation will be read before the two minute silence by local veteran, Ian Chatfield, 5th Queens Royal Regiment OMA. A bugler from the Friary Guildford Brass Band will then sound the Last Post from the Guildhall balcony.

A cadet from the Royal Grammar School Combined Cadet Force will read the Kohima Epitaph. 'Reveille' will sound to mark the end of the ceremony.

On Sunday 12 November the Mayor will also attend the Annual Service of Remembrance at Holy Trinity Church, Guildford. After the service military groups will join the Civic procession to the Castle Grounds at around 11.50am. A short wreath laying ceremony will then take place at the town's war memorial to remember the servicemen and women who lost their lives in recent and current conflicts, as well as those who lost their lives in two world wars.

For more information please call the Civic Secretary on 01483 444031.
