Kent Cricket’s Remembrance Service

The Colin Blythe Memorial at the Spitfire Ground St Lawrence will be the setting for Kent Cricket to mark its annual Remembrance Service.

The Memorial carries the names of Colin Blythe and of all Kent’s first-class cricketers who died in the conflicts of 1914-1918 and 1939-1945.

This ceremony, to be led by Club Chaplain, Barney de Berry, will take place on Wednesday 8 November, the Anniversary of Colin Blythe’s death. There will also be wreaths laid by the Club & the Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment (PWRR), followed by a two minutes’ silence at 11:00.

All are invited to join Club staff, players and coaches at the Memorial from 10:30 in order for the service to start promptly at 10:50. Those wishing to attend are asked to confirm their space by booking a place via the button below:
