As the Abbey clock strikes eleven, on the eleventh day of the eleventh month, Sherborne stops for two minutes silence.
We remember all those who have died in all the conflicts of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
Many of the shops in the town display poppies and memorials in their windows to commemorate this day:
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
