Surrey Heath paid their respects to those involved in the First and Second World War, as well as more recent conflicts, during Remembrance Sunday services across the Borough on 12 November.

The Mayor of Surrey Heath Cllr Valerie White joined the morning service at St Anne’s Church, Bagshot, before attending St Michael's Church, Camberley, together with Chief Executive Karen Whelan, for a 2pm service.

A parade including The Mayor, Lt Col Tim Cave-Gibbs of The Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, Surrey Heath MP Michael Gove, and Karen Whelan travelled along the A30 London Road following the service.

Many local military and community groups took part in the parade, after which wreaths were laid at the War Memorial outside the RMA entrance in Camberley.

Deputy Mayor Cllr Dan Adams attended the morning service at St John the Baptist, Windlesham, and joined those at the service at St Lawrence Church, Chobham in the afternoon.

Honorary Alderman Alan Whittart attended the morning service at All Saints Church, Lightwater, which was followed by an Act of Remembrance at the War Memorial.

The Remembrance Sunday services are organised by the Royal British Legion, with Surrey Heath Borough Council and the military working together to support the event.
