Following the Act of Remembrance, the Parade will then march back to the Old Market Square for the ‘Parade dismissal’.
Cllr Deborah Merryweather, Chairman of Bassetlaw District Council said: “It’s my honour as Chairman of the council to attend this service of remembrance. Remembrance Day services bring people together to commemorate the individuals who have given their service, and in some cases their lives, to ensure our protection and freedoms.
“I hope that members of the public will join us to think of members of the Armed Force, and their loved ones, who have made sacrifices to defend us. We will remember them.”
