Sudbury will commemorate the centenary of the end of the First World War with a parade and the lighting of a beacon this weekend.

On Sunday, November 11, leaving at 2pm, a parade will start from the north side of Market Hill led by Colchester Pipes and Drums.

It will then march to St Gregory’s Church for a service at 2.30pm, and a marquee will be positioned on the Croft to accommodate people not able to get into the church.

After the service, wreaths will be laid on the British and American memorials and the parade will then march along a different route back to Market Hill.

After the salute is taken, refreshments will be served in the town hall.

At 7pm, a ceremony will take place to light the beacon on the Croft, which is being organised in partnership with Great Cornard Parish Council.
