Louth Remembrance Day Parade information.

This year’s Remembrance Sunday Service in Louth is taking place on Sunday, November 9.

The Louth and District branch of the Royal British Legion, as in past years, is again inviting all residents and organisations to attend a service of remembrance and wreath lying ceremony at Louth War Memorial.

Everyone involved in the parade is being asked to arrive in Northgate by 10am.

The main parade will leave the car park adjacent to the Royal British Legion headquarters in Northgate at 10.25am and from there will head to the war memorial.

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

Two minutes silence will then be observed at 11am.

This will be followed by a parade to the Parish Church For Divine Worship which will begin at around 11.15am.

Following on from the church service, refreshments will be served to all those involved afterwards at the RBL headquarters in Northgate.

Any standard bearer who requires training for the parade is to report to the RBL headquarters at 7pm on Friday, November 7.

In the event of heavy rain and the service at the war memorial being cancelled, everyone is asked to go directly to the Parish Church and be seated by 11am.

In the case of heavy rainfall, the legion will lay wreaths at the war memorial at around 10.40am, and any other wreath bearers may join them if they so wish.

Wreath bearers should report to Mr Papworth at the Royal British Legion Headquarters to collect their wreaths prior to the parade.
