This year Remembrance Sunday falls on the 13th November 2022. The Royal British Legion will once again hold a Remembrance Ceremony at the War Memorial in the Cemetery, commencing at 10.50am.
There will be some significant changes this year.
1. The Parade Route: The Parade will form at the Old Bowling Green and parade “UP” New Street to the Cemetery.
2. Dismissal at the end of the Service: The Service will be dismissed in the cemetery, contrary to previous arrangements. The mayor will give his thanks followed by “God Save The King” – 2 verses. The order for dismissal will allow for those at the back to be the first to leave.
3. Standard Practice: Will move from the Pannier Market to the Town’s Band room in Castle Street. Further information will be sent to individual organisations nearer the time.
Ordering of wreaths will be the same as last year and should be ordered direct from the Royal British Legion in plenty of time. A wreath can be ordered by contacting the Royal British Legion on 0345 845 1945. The wreath will be posted out to you.
