Remembrance Sunday

On Remembrance Sunday, the Mayor Cllr Onnalee Cubitt will lay a wreath at the War Memorial on behalf of the borough. Following the service, the Mayor will take the salute with the Deputy Lieutenant, with a parade. The service will be led by the Mayor’s Chaplain, Reverend Canon Linda Scard.

Following the same parade route as in 2019, the uniformed groups and organisations taking part will march from the bandstand in War Memorial Park to the War Memorial. Following the service, the parade will march through the Top of the Town to the end of London Street, where the parade will be dismissed by the parade marshal.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn

At the going down of the sun, and in the morning

We will remember them
