There are a range of remembrance events being held across Hart on Sunday 11 November. Please find below a list of events taking place.
Blackwater and Hawley – 100 Year Commemorative Event
Visitors and residents are welcome to attend the Hawley Church service at 10.30am. The church service is expected to conclude at 11.30am when the assembly will then make their way to the Hawley Memorial hall led by a lone Piper for the civic ceremony at 11.40am. Alternatively, for those not wanting to attend the church service and who want to attend the civic ceremony instead, they will need to leave enough time to be in place at the Hawley Memorial hall before the congregation departs the church at 11.30am in order to avoid the congestion. At 12 noon coffees will be available in the Memorial hall.
