Remembrance Parade 2023
This year’s Remembrance Sunday is 12th November. The Royal British Legion (RBL) has been working closely with the Town Council, Police, Lions, St Edmund’s and the Town Band and Bellringers and plans are being finalised for the Remembrance Sunday parade and service at St Edmunds.
Parade participants and spectators are invited to assemble in the High Street from 10am in preparation for the parade, led by the Town Band, moving off promptly at 10.45am.
Following continued positive feedback about the recent changes in format, we will again be laying the wreaths, reading the names of the Fallen and undertaking the Two Minute Silence in Church Street in front of the War Memorial.
The members of the parade and those members of the public wishing to, will enter St Edmunds for the remainder of the Service. For those who are unable to attend in person we will be streaming the indoor Service online and will share details in advance.
At the end of the Church service the parade will reform, and, led by the Town Band, return to Church Street, which is closed for the duration. Following fall out, all are welcome to join the RBL in The George.
Please watch out for more details on social media and also on the Noticeboard in The Bury. Please do also share this information with friends who are not on social media.
Armistice Day will be observed on Saturday 11th November with to-minutes silence in the High Street outside The George at 11.00am.
