In pictures: Remembrance Sunday Parade marches through Storrington

Large crowds lined the streets in Storrington at the weekend to watch the Remembrance Sunday Parade.

The magnificent march, which took place on November 13, began at the bus stand behind Waitrose at 2.40pm.

It included representatives from 1st Sullington & Storrington Scouts, Cubs and Beavers, 1st Sullington Brownies, 2nd Storrington Guides, The Royal British Legion Storrington Branch and the HMS Bristol Association, as well as the Armed Forces.

The main high street was closed while the parade made its way to St Mary’s Church for a two-minute silence to remember those who gave their lives for their country. This was followed by a Remembrance Service inside the church.

Rev. J. Simpson, who gave the sermon, said: “This year is important, not only because we remember our late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II but also 2022 marks 100 years since a group of people, like all of us, put up a memorial here at Sullington, to those who had recently died in the Great War.”

He added: “People visit this church every day – ramblers, dog walkers, cyclists, horse riders, people looking for wedding venues and those interested in history or architecture. Many remark on the atmosphere of peace and beauty. The congregation of 1922 would want us to work tirelessly for peace, to serve each other and to be thankful for our relatively peaceful lives.”

A representative from Storrington Remembrance Parade thanked The Scribbling Shop for printing road closure signs for the marshals to use. There was also a beautiful display of knitted and crocheted poppies from Sullington Windmills WI in the High Street opposite HSBC.
