Venue: Merton Civic Centre, London Road, Morden SM4 5DX
This year marks the Armistice Centenary and Merton will be playing its part in Battle’s Over, a unique day-long commemoration marking 100 years since the guns fell silent at the end of World War One.
A special commemorative event will take place from 6.30pm (11 November) at the civic centre in Morden. Hosted by the Mayor of Merton, community groups and residents will come together, with the rest of the nation, to remember the end of the war and the millions who were killed or came home wounded.
At 6.55pm a bugler will sound the last post outside the civic centre. At 7pm the Mayor of Merton and Deputy Lieutenant will light a Beacon in a tribute signifying the light of peace that emerged from the darkness of four years of war.
Then at 7:05pm the civic centre will ring out with the sound of bells as part of Ringing out for Peace national tribute. Anyone attending the event is encouraged to bring along a bell.Battle's Over MertonTV
