Armistice Day Across Dorset

Thomas Hardye School Remembrance 2

7:18am 11th November 2014
(Updated 10:35am 11th November 2014)

Dorset will remember the fallen heroes during a two minute silence at 11 o'clock.

A wreath will be laid by West Dorset District Council Chairman Gillian Summers at the memorial outside County Hall in Dorchester during the County council's remembrance service.

Weymouth mayor Kate Wheller will attend the Royal British Legion Rembrance Service at the war memorial on the esplanade.

Over 2,000 students and 200 staff will stand in silent tribute in front of the Thomas Hardye School Gates in Dorchester's Queens Avenue, honouring former pupils from the school, Dorchester Grammar and Old Hardyeans.

35 of First Buses' Wessex fleet operating from Weymouth and Yeovil will be adorned with large red poppies, and their drivers will observe the silence if it's safe to do so.

Possibly the largest poppy will be on Coopers Field, Bridport where the Allington Hillbillies have placed a named wooden cross for each of the 153 Bridport men who lost their lives in World War 1, surrounding it. The names of all those who died will be read out.
