THE names of those from Fareham who died in conflict will be read out before the borough’s official remembrance service.

The Forever Remembered reading will take place from 10am at the memorial at Trinity Church in West Street, Fareham, next Sunday.

Councillor Sean Woodward, leader of Fareham Borough Council, said: ‘It’s an honour to pay tribute to the members of the armed forces who paid the ultimate sacrifice whilst fighting for our country.

‘I’d like to recognise the origin of the suggestion to read out the names of our war dead was made to me a few years ago by the Old Priceans, old boys who attended Fareham’s Price’s Grammar School. It’s good to see the idea has now spread from Fareham to other boroughs’ remembrance services.’
