The Waveney Singers will be presenting a programme of words and songs from the Second World War on Remembrance Day.

The group of 12 women will be performing in 40s style costumes at Our Lady Star of the Sea Church in Gordon Road, Lowestoft, on Saturday, November 11.

The concert will start at 11am with two minute's silence, followed by a 45 minute programme of songs and words from the 40s.

This is the fourth year the group have held the concert, and there will be a bucket collection with donations going to military charity Help for Heroes.

A spokesman from the Waveney Singers said: 'Most people who fought and lived in the Second World War are no longer here to commemorate this occasion. We hope that in our small way we contribute to maintaining the memory of their sacrifice.
