HINCKLEY’S annual Remembrance Sunday service will take place on Sunday 10 November at the Argents Mead war memorial.
Clergy and church members of different denominations, the Royal British Legion and Veterans Groups, Civic Leaders, representatives of the Guiding, Scouting and Cadet Organisations will all contribute to the morning’s service.
The service will start just before 11am and all are welcome to attend. Anyone planning to come along is respectfully asked to ensure they arrive at the memorial gardens by 10:45am.
There will be a parade from the hospital car park on Mount Road to the war memorial before the service. Following the service, there will be a parade down Castle Street, through the Market Place - where a salute will be taken - and into St Marys Road where the parade will disperse.
Mayor of Hinckley & Bosworth Councillor Lynda Hodgkins said:
We are pleased that so many veterans, serving personnel, uniformed organisations and members of the public attend Hinckley’s Remembrance Parade and Service each year to remember those who have served our country. It is a very moving occasion and I am honoured to be taking the salute on behalf of the borough.
Please check individual parish council websites and the council’s events page for listings for other Remembrance events and parades throughout the borough.
