This year, Remembrance Sunday falls on 10th November. Last year we reverted to the traditional time for our Remembrance Sunday parade and church service; in the morning. Last year being the 100th anniversary of the Armistice ending the Great War of 1914 to 1918, everyone pulled the stops out and held it in the morning. We will continue in future to always have our Remembrance in the morning.

This year's timings

10:00 prompt Assemble at the Memorial Hall car park.
10:20 prompt March off.
10:45 Church service in the Parish Church commences (approx. 1hr).
11:50 approx. Parade will reassemble and march back to Churchfields.

Wreaths will be laid at the Memorial Roll of Honour within the Parish Church. We expect to have representatives of the local councils, schools, youth organisations, and the military. We do hope you can attend this important annual event.

Steve Lee, Rob Dickinson and Dave Hill will be coordinating this year.
