A town has begun its celebrations to mark 100 years since the peace truce was called on the First World War.

A range of events are taking place in Soham to remember those who lost their lives.

Soham Remembers, is a festival of remembrance by Soham churches, Soham Knit and Knatter, the Royal British Legion, Soham Town Council and Soham Tourism and Heritage.

The event began with a patriotic concert by Soham Comrades Band.

Crafters have been busy preparing an exhibition called We Will Remember them which is a vibrant display of knitted poppies and flower arrangements inside the church as a visual reminder of the many men who lost their lives.

The exhibition is at St Andrew’s Church and is open daily from 11am - 4pm.

There will also be a service around the Soham War Memorial from 10.55am and a service inside the church at 11.40am for Remembrance Sunday.

To complete the day there will be a beacon lighting event at 7pm.
