Remembrance Sunday Cenotaph Parade

As an Association we have registered our interest to participate again in this annual Cenotaph March Pass. Based on the attendance from last year we have bid for 30 attendees. Whilst this may seem a small number it is in line with previous years attendances. Those who have taken part on a frequent basis advise that would be attendees need to appreciate that there are long periods of standing around on cordoned areas. Those who wish to attend are to email their intention to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . This email address will come to the Chairman, until such time as we appoint a new Secretary.
