A special ‘field of remembrance’ will once again be opened to the public at Carisbrooke Castle to commemorate those in the uniformed services who lost their lives in service of their country.
The field was introduced in the Princess Beatrice Garden at Carisbrooke Castle in 2010.
It was established by the Lord-Lieutenant of the Isle of Wight, Major General Martin White, as a place where residents could pay their respects around the time of Remembrance Sunday.
The castle will open its doors for people to visit the field between 10am and 1pm on Thursday, November 10, as well as on Saturday, November 12 and Sunday, November 13 between 10am and 4pm. It will not be open on Friday, November 11.
Crosses can be purchased at the castle, with proceeds going to the Royal British Legion.
A formal service of remembrance, which members of the public are welcome to attend, will take place at the castle on Thursday, November 10 at 10.45am.
Following the service, refreshments will be provided by the Isle of Wight Federation of Women’s Institutes.
