The Bishop of Basingstoke, Peter Hancock, led a service in St Mary's at 10 o'clock, attended by the Mayor of Test Valley, the Deputy Lieutenant Mark Radcliffe, the local MP Sir George Young, county councillors, borough councillors and representatives of the Armed Forces.
Afterwards, at 11 o'clock there was a 2 minute silence, followed by a wreath laying ceremony at the War Memorial outside St Mary's Church. This was followed by a parade in East Street, and a reception at the Guildhall.
"There seemed to be more people attending the Rememberance Day Service in Andover than ever before, and this year's ceremony was made more memorable by having a piper play after the 2 minute silence".
The town was silent for the two minutes, and local traffic was halted.
