Remembrance crosses and poppies by catsanchez

Issued on behalf of The Lord Lieutenant of the Isle of Wight, Mrs Susie Sheldon

A special ‘field of remembrance’ will once again be opened to the public at Carisbrooke Castle this month (November) to commemorate those in the uniformed services who lost their lives in service of their country.

The field was introduced in the Princess Beatrice Garden at Carisbrooke Castle in 2010. It was established by the then Lord-Lieutenant of the Isle of Wight, Major General, Sir Martin White, as a place where residents can pay their respects around the time of Remembrance Sunday.

A formal service of remembrance, which members of the public are welcome to attend, will take place at the castle on Thursday 11th November at 10.45am

Crosses can be purchased at the castle, with proceeds going to the Royal British Legion. Refreshments at a small charge will be provided by the Women’s Institute.
