Plans for 2014 Wilmslow Remembrance Day Parade and Service


The Wilmslow Remembrance Day parade and service will take place on Sunday, 9th November.

Those participating in the parade will assemble outside the Royal British Legion on Grove Avenue at around 9.15am.

The parade, under the control of Parade Marshall Chris McMurdock, will form along Grove Avenue.

Civic dignitaries, police officers, army cadets, air cadets, scouts, cubs, beavers, guides, brownies and rainbows will all line up behind members of the Royal British Legion and the Alderley District Scout Band.

The Parade will then leave Grove Avenue at 9.30am prompt and march down Grove Street and Church Street.

The service will take place at St Bartholomew's Church at 10am. At around 10.50am the service in the Church will end and the congregation will make their way up the road to the War Memorial ready for the two minutes silence and the wreath laying ceremony at 11am.

After the wreath laying service the parade will reform on Chancel Lane and parade back to the Royal British Legion where refreshments will be served.

This year the Salute will be taken on Grove Street as the parade returns to Grove Avenue.

This year, St Bartholomew's church will be using poppies in a model of the Tower of London, and then to decorate the church at Christmas. After Remembrance Sunday, we will be collecting all unwanted poppies, so would like to ask everyone to drop them into the box which will be inside at the back of the church. This includes all old ones from previous years! Please tell your friends and pass the message on.
Many thanks.
