Edwinstowe Remembrance Service & Parade

by | 5 November 2019 | Heritage, Notice, Sherwood

Plans for the Remembrance Sunday event in Edwinstowe are now well underway. This year will follow the very successful format of the past two years, with just one change. Because of the significant building work now underway on the site of the former Manvers Arms PH, the start and finish point has been moved for the march, to the road leading to the skate park at Friars Park.

Groups or individuals who wish to join the march from Friars Park to St Mary’s Church are warmly invited to do so and should gather at the skate park no later than 9.15am on Sunday 10th November. From there, the march will join the church service that will start promptly at 10.00am.

Following the church service, the parade will re-form for the short march to the memorial gardens, where it will observe the 11.00am two-minute silence with the nation, before marching back to the start point via West Lane and Mansfield Road.

Last year was a very special year when the centenary of the end of WWI was commemorated. The Royal British Legion believes every year offers that special occasion when we can spend some time thinking of those who gave their lives for continued peace and freedom. If you don’t plan on attending the church service, you are welcome to join everyone at the memorial gardens for the final stage of the commemoration. In that case, please ensure that you are in place at the Edwinstowe crossroads not later than 10.50am.
