It will follow a Queen Street Central Hall service, which will begin at 9.30am. This will feature the blessing of standards and wreaths, a drumhead ceremony and poppies falling during the silence period.

Veterans, standard bearers, wreath carriers, members of the lifeboat crew and coastguard team, army, air and sea cadets will then parade down to the harbour for the lifeboat house service, beginning at 10.30am. High tide will be at 3pm so people should be able to stand on the beach.

Colin Woodhead, who chairs Scarborough RNLI, will make a reading. Music will be played by organist Francis Appleby.

The wreaths will be laid out at the lifeboat house and taken up to the Oliver’s Mount war memorial later. They used to be laid on the sea from a small Sub-Aqua Club vessel, the Richard S. Biodegradable poppies are now laid on the sea, near the harbour entrance, instead.

Both services are organised by Tom Fox.
