Remembrance Day Parade 2017

7/11/17 About 1 minute
This year's Remembrance Sunday Parade and Service will take place on Sunday 12 November at the War Memorial on Duke Street, Chelmsford, at 10.50am. The Mayor will join veterans and members of the public to pay respect to all those who continue to serve our country's Armed Forces, as well as those who gave their lives during previous wars.

The service will be conducted by the Very Reverend Nicholas Henshall, Dean of Chelmsford. Following the service, the Parade will march off along Rainsford Road before returning to march past the War Memorial, where the Mayor will take the salute.

The Mayor of Chelmsford, Councillor Duncan Lumley, invites you to join him at this special annual Service of Remembrance, saying "We owe so much to our Armed Forces who have fought, died and been injured defending us. By wearing a poppy you are supporting the Armed Forces community both past and present, and we ask you to Rethink Remembrance and reflect on the contribution made by all generations of the Armed Forces. All the money raised from the poppy sales goes to those who have served and are serving in our Armed Forces and their families, so I'd encourage everyone to buy one and wear it with pride as Remembrance weekend approaches."

Please note parts of Duke Street will be closed from 10am on Sunday 12 November but access to Fairfield Road Car Park from Coval Lane will still be available. Parking in Fairfield Road Car Park will be free all day and one of the exit barriers at the High Chelmer multi-storey Car Park will be left raised between 11.30-12.30pm.

As in previous years, there will also be a shelter provided for elderly and disabled ex-service men and women.

The Order of Service, which includes hymns and prayers, can be downloaded from Chelmsford City Council's website at http://www.chelmsford.gov.uk/remembrance
