Remembrance Sunday

On Sunday 11th November Westbury residents will remember those who gave their lives for their country in two World Wars and many worldwide conflicts since.

The Service and Parade will take place at the War Memorial and on the High Street, Westbury, and we hope the event is as well supported as in previous years.
