Wet weather in Malvern and Upton didn’t stop people gathering to show their respects on Remembrance Sunday (November 12).

A remembrance service took place at Great Malvern Priory at 10am and was followed by a parade down Church Street to the war memorial in the grounds of Great Malvern Library.

After a short service and two-minute silence at the memorial, the Malvern Hills Armed Forces Veterans Breakfast Club also held a wreath laying service at the Falklands Memorial Bench.

Malvern town clerk Linda Blake said: “Remembrance Sunday is our chance as a nation to 

stand together to remember the millions of people from across the United Kingdom, and 

from across the world, who sacrificed so much to keep us safe.”

A civic service also took place at Great Malvern Priory on Saturday morning for Armistice Day.

In Upton, there were short wreath-laying ceremonies on Armistice Day at the William Tennant Memorial and outside the Memorial Hall.

On Sunday, there was a parade through New Street to the Remembrance Sunday service at St Peter and St Paul’s Church, then a wreath-laying ceremony at the war memorial in Lower High Street.
