paphos remembrance day 2

A service to mark Remembrance Day will be held in Paphos on Sunday at Peyia municipality car park, and the public is invited to attend.

The service, organised by Alan Wilson of MARCH (Military and Retired Cyprus Holidays for Heroes) – a Paphos-based non-profit organisation that offers holidays for injured or traumatised serving or non-serving military personnel, and the New Testament Community Church, will honour fallen servicemen and women from WWI, including civilian servicemen and women involved in the two world wars and later conflicts.

“The full Cenotaph-style service will be held in memory of all those who gave their lives for their countries during wars, conflicts or terrorism,” Wilson said. “The public will also be able to lay symbols of remembrance.”

Members of the Paphos municipality will also be in attendance, and the service will include a solo performance by singer Judith Evans.

The service will commence at 10.30am, and a two-minute silence will be observed at 11am.
