This year we remember the sacrifices that were made for us during the conflict of World War 1.
As we remember the war ending this year, 100 years on and the sacrifices that were made both by those that fought on the front line in order for us to keep the freedom we have today and those who served at home keeping the British Isles safe and helping to rebuild communities that were devastated in the bombing across the country, as well as those who took on roles to keep the country working whilst the men were away from home fighting.
It is with Pride and sadness that we reflect on this momentous occasion, Ashford Wide has helped to ensure that Ashford Remembers this year.
We have created 2 Banners in the Town, one on the Multi Storey Car Park and the other opposite the War Memorial, as well as Placing 100 Poppies for 100 Years along the High Street.
Spelthorne Council have also played their part with a Tommy Silhouette on the Roundabout at Town Tree Road.
This Year the will as ever be a Parade on Sunday 11th November, culminating in a short service at the Memorial.
Roads in the area will be closed from 10.00AM if you need to travel during this time then please consider your route before setting off.
Everyone is invited to join and remember at the Memorial.
‘They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.’
