Remembrance Day parade in Louth on November 10


Remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice so that we may live in peace.

The Louth & District Branch of the Royal British Legion has organised the service of remembrance and wreath laying at Louth War Memorial on Sunday, November 10.

Members of local organisations taking place in the parade will assemble in the car park next to the Royal British Legion headquarters in Northgate at 10am.

Wreath bearers should report to Brian Papworth, Poppy Area Organiser, at the RBL headquarters to collect their wreaths before the start of the parade.

The parade will leave the car park at 10.25am.

It will march up Northgate into Eastgate to the War Memorial.

Contingents will take their places in Eastgate and Ramsgate and names of wreath bearers will be called out by the parade marshall.

Two minutes silence will be observed at 11am.

After the wreath laying the parade will march along Eastgate, Mercer Row and Upgate to St James’s Church for a service at 11.15am.

After the church service members of the organisations will assemble on the cobbles outside St James’s.

The parade will then march back in reverse order of the route.

The parade will halt in Mercer Row whilst the Mayor of Louth and party take up place in the Market Place for a march past.

Upon arriving back at the Northgate car park the parade will be dismissed.

If there is heavy rain and the service at the War Memorial is cancelled, contingents are asked to go directly to the parish church and be seated by 11am.

Those who fell will never be forgotten.

We will remember them.
