Remembrance Sunday

NOTIFICATION OF CHANGES TO THE FORMAT FOR THIS YEAR’S REMEMBRANCE DAY SERVICE

You are invited to attend the Annual Remembrance Day Service to be held on Sunday 10 November 2019 AT the War Memorial, Appley Lane North, Appley Bridge.

As there will be no Policing available for the Remembrance Day Parade this year, the Parish Council have taken the decision NOT TO process down Appley Lane North from the village hall.  In order to do this a road closure order, Policing and or stewards/marshals would be required to escort the parade.  As the Police will not be policing any parades in West Lancs. it is too onerous to ask volunteers to steward/marshal this event and, they would need to be properly trained.

Therefore, there will be no procession, and everyone is asked to make their own way to the War Memorial and gather there for the Remembrance Service.

You are invited to meet AT the War Memorial at 10.30 am, with the Remembrance Service starting at 10.45 am and the Act of Remembrance at 11.00 am.

Refreshments will be available afterwards at Appley Bridge Village Hall if people would like to make their way back there.
