Description

Worksop Remembrance Day Parade and Service, arranged by Bassetlaw District Council, will take place on Sunday 11 November 2018.

The Parade will ‘form-up’ in the Old Market Square in front of the Town Hall at around 10.10 am under the direction of the Parade Marshall Sergeant Neil Orton.  

The Parade will be inspected by the Deputy Lieutenant of Nottinghamshire, Mr William Parente and the Chairman of the District Council, Councillor David Challinor.  The Worksop Miners’ Welfare Band will play during the inspection.

At approx. 10.40 am the Parade will ‘march off’ from the Market Square down to the War Memorial via Potter Street and Watson Road.

A short wreath laying Service and Act of Remembrance conducted by Canon Nicolas Spicer will take place at the War Memorial at approximately 10.50am.  The Worksop Salvation Army Band will play ‘The Last Post’ before the two minutes silence at 11.00am followed by the playing of the ‘Reveille’. 

Following the Act of Remembrance at the War Memorial, the Parade will then proceed to the Priory Church for a further Service where the Standards will be presented.  To commemorate 100 years of WW1, 528 candles will burn throughout the Service (this is in honour of the fallen soldiers listed in the Lady Chapel).

At approximately 12.00 noon, the Parade will reform and proceed back to the Market Square for Parade dismissal.
