Remembrance Sunday services and parades
Residents are being invited to parades and memorial services in the borough to mark Remembrance Sunday on 13 November.
The events in Havant, Hayling and Emsworth will commemorate the sacrifices of those who lost their lives in the two World Wars and more recent world conflicts.
The Mayor of Havant, Councillor Diana Patrick, said: “Remembrance Sunday honours those who have made and continue to make the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
“I’d like to invite all residents to join us at the services and wreath laying around the borough, to welcome the Royal British Legion, our soldiers, young and old who will be remembering those who have lost their lives on this important Day of Remembrance.”
