The Annual Service of Remembrance was held at St Mary's Church in Andover, this year preceded by a Service in the Church, before the Civic Representatives went into the Garden of Remembrance.

The Civic Parade was led by the Mayor of Test Valley, Cllr Chris Lynn and his wife Frances, and the address in the Garden of Remembrance was given by The Reverend Canon John Harkin. The Deputy Lieutenant of Hampshire laid the first wreath, followed by the Mayor of Test Valley and the President of the Andover Branch of the Royal British Legion.

"There was a huge turnout for this service, despite the cold weather. There was a poppy drop from aircraft from the Second World War at 11am which was a very moving part of the ceremony, and this was followed by the march past in Eastern Avenue, where the Mayor took the salute."
