Silhouettes of Remembrance figures

Whitehill & Bordon will be honouring the fallen in a different way this year. As we are not all able to commemorate together we have highlighted a few ways that residents can still take part whilst we remember via a closed event of wreaths being laid at the town’s War Memorial.

Please do stay home and keep safe. If you would like to visit the War Memorials and pay your respects, they will be accessible all weekend, but please respect social distancing.
