This Remembrance Sunday.


This weekend we choose to remember the brave service men and women who fought and are now in the armed services protecting our country and our values.

Here in West Berkshire, we have a number of events to mark 100 years since the First World War ended and we want to make it as easy as possible for you to know about them. We've compiled a list below and hope this helps.
