Helston is being asked to fall silent for two minutes this Saturday for Armistice Day.

Mayor Gillian Geer will join others at the Garden of Remembrance, beside the Grylls Monument, to observe the two-minute silence at 11am.

It is hoped that local businesses, shops and anyone in town will pay tribute in the same way and stand together in silence.

The following day, Remembrance Sunday, the annual parade will gather in Helston in the Trengrouse Way car park to march through the town at 2.30pm for a short service at St Michael's Church, followed by a wreath laying at the war memorial. The parade will then continue on to the Garden of Remembrance, where more wreaths will be laid.

A similar event will take place in Porthleven, with councillors meeting at the Public Hall at 2pm to march to St Bartholomew's Church for a service.

Other ceremonies will take place all over the Lizard Peninsula, including at St Keverne where the parish council and other organisations will gather at the statute at the top of the village to march to the war memorial.
