Armistice Day will be marked at Sidmouth Parish Church with the dedication of a garden of remembrance at 10.15am tomorrow (Friday).
There will then be a service at the war memorial at 11am.
On Remembrance Sunday (November 13), a procession will muster outside the Co-op in High Street at 10.15am to step off at 10.30am.
It will be led by Sidmouth Town Band to a service at the war memorial given by the Reverend Canon Dr Philip Bourne, when the standards will be presented.
In case of wet weather, the service will be held inside the church, where wreaths will also be laid. After the service, members of the congregation are invited for refreshments at the rear of the church.
