VETERANS, troops, a marching band and uniformed groups will be taking part in Andover's Remembrance Sunday parade.

The event will honour servicemen and women, on Sunday, November 12 and allow residents to pay their respects to those who served in battle and made the ultimate sacrifice.

It will begin in Bridge Street before moving towards Winchester Street, onto Eastern Avenue, and end at St Mary’s Church.

An indoor service, led by Rev’d Chris Bradish, will be held at 10am in the church before a special service in the Garden of Remembrance at 10.45am.

Wreaths will be laid by the Deputy Lieutenant of Hampshire, the Mayor of Test Valley, the president of the Andover Branch of the Royal British Legion, representatives of the Freeman of the Borough of Test Valley and the North West Hampshire MP.

Schoolchildren will also lay posies of poppies.

Following the Act of Remembrance, dignitaries will travel to Eastern Avenue to salute the return parade.

This will result in some road closures on Sunday morning.
