RESIDENTS are invited to celebrate Salisbury’s annual Charter service this weekend.

It takes place on Sunday (February 6) at 10.15am as part of Charter Sunday.

The service will celebrate the signing of the Salisbury Charter in 1227 and the links between council, church and the wider community and will take place at the Parish Church of St Thomas and St Edmund’s.

The mayor and city councillors will process from Salisbury Guildhall at 10am to St Thomas’ Church for the annual service which will mark 795 years since the Charter was signed.

New Sarum was made a city by King Henry III in 1227 by a Charter confirming the relocation of the cathedral from Sarisberie and establishing the Charter Market and the annual Charter Fair.

For those unable to attend the service will be live streamed.
