At 9 30am there will be a church service in St. Nicolas Church, Cranleigh, to which all members of the public are welcome to attend. The service will be a service just for Remembrance, and not part of the normal Sunday Communion service which will take place afterwards. This special church service will finish at 10 30am.
There will then be a parade through Cranleigh High Street which will set off from outside of church at 10 40 am and proceed to Cranleigh War Memorial. At this point the High Street will be closed to traffic until the end of the Service of Remembrance at the War Memorial. This will be marshalled by the Cranleigh Lions.
This year the parade will once again be led by some 200 cadets and piper’s from Cranleigh School who were officially affiliated into the Cranleigh and District Branch of the RBL on the 13th October, 2021, and a new intake of cadets were affiliated on 12th October, 2022.
Before the start of the service at the War Memorial, the Cranleigh Lions will once again read out the names of the fallen that are on the Cranleigh War Memorial. The service of Remembrance will commence at 10 55am and will be led by Canon Roy Woodhams from St. Nicolas Church.
The band from Cranleigh School will be in attendance to play the music for the hymns and music during the laying of the wreaths. There will also be a trumpeter present to play The Last Post and Reveille.
After the service at the War Memorial, the parade will then move on to the Cranleigh Village Sports and Social Club. At the club the John Sandford Band will be playing and there will be a raffle in aid of the Poppy Appeal. All are welcome back to the Club.
