Remembrance Day arrangements confirmed


The Wilmslow Remembrance Day parade and service will take place on Sunday, 10th November.

Those participating in the Remembrance Day 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.

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

This year the Service cannot be held at St Bartholomew's Church because of on-going building works there, so it will be held at the nearby Wilmslow Parish Hall on Chancel Lane, starting at 10am.

At around 10.45am the service in the Hall 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.
