THE Lord Mayor of Portsmouth is set to lead the city in the annual service of remembrance for those who have lost their lives at sea and to commemorate the life of Nelson this Sunday.

At 11am, the Lord Mayor, Councillor Lynne Stagg, will be joined by the mayors of Havant, Fareham and Gosport for the service at Portsmouth’s Anglican Cathedral, which will be led by the Dean of Portsmouth, the Very Reverend David Brindley.

Senior officers from the Royal Navy and the Royal Marines will also attend the cathedral service, where a collection will be taken for the Seafarers UK charity.

At midday, attendees will then process to the statue of Admiral Lord Nelson in Old Portsmouth.
