The Lord Lieutenant’s Armistice Centenary Committee are currently planning a number of events to mark the centenary of the 1918 Armistice. These events will be in addition to the Remembrance Sunday activities which will go ahead as usual throughout the country.
One of the planned events, which is being organised by the Royal British Legion in Suffolk, will be to invite school children to lay poppies on the 1,332 Great War graves that lie in 248 cemeteries and churchyards across the county.
The event will take place on Thursday 8th November 2018, concluding with a nationwide Act of Remembrance at 11:00 AM.
The Lord Lieutenant has written to Suffolk schools informing them of this event and so the Suffolk Royal British Legion are currently looking for volunteers and supporters to help with this project.
