Fairfield Community Hall, 3–4pm
An exhibition of photographs and memorabilia loaned by residents whose family members served in the Great War, plus artefacts from Fairfield Hospital and a display of art from Fairfield Park Lower School.
Urban Park, 6–7pm
Uniformed organisations begin their march from St Luke’s Chapel to the Urban Park at 6pm; members of the public are invited to gather in the Urban Park in time for their arrival. The programme includes readings, singing by the Fairfield Park Lower School choir, and the placing of poppies and wreaths.
