Isle of Wight remembrance services revealed

Those taking Isle of Wight holidays this weekend who want to pay tribute to fallen heroes can do so at a range of Remembrance Day services taking place on the island.

The Isle of Wight Council has announced that a traditional procession from the Guildhall to St Thomas' Square will be held in Newport on Sunday (November 14th 2010).

A service of remembrance will take place in Newport Minster, with the leader of the Isle of Wight Council Ian Stephens, Lord-Lieutenant of the Isle of Wight Major General Martin White and High Sheriff Peter Kingston among those set to be in attendance.

"On Armistice Day, a maroon will be fired at 11:00 GMT from the drill tower at Newport Fire Station marking the start of the two minutes silence," noted the council.

Tourists on Isle of Wight holidays can also attend services in East Cowes, Ventnor, Yarmouth, Binstead and Ryde.

Additionally, a Field of Remembrance is set to be opened up in the grounds of Carisbrooke Castle on the day.
