Remembrance Service & Parade 11th November

Jan Bailey

Marlow's Remembrance Service and Parade will be held on Sunday 11th November 2018 at the War Memorial on the Causeway.  The Parade will set off from the Royal British Legion Headquarters Station Approach, led by the Scots Guards Association of Pipe Band,  at approximately 10.30am, arriving at the Memorial for the start of the Service at 10.45am when Air Marshall, Sir Colin Terry, KBE, CB, DL "Comes on Parade."  Reverend Dave Bull from All Saints' Church will lead the service, assisted by Reverend Nick Thompson from Marlow Methodist Church and Pastor Kenneth Claessen from Newfield Community Church.

During the Wreath Laying, the names of the fallen in WW1, WW2 and Afghanistan will be read out by the Town Mayor and followed by Cadets from the three Cadet Forces.  Marlow Town Band will be providing the music for the hymns, with Simon Davie playing the Last Post and Reveille.  In order to recognise the importance of this year, being the Centenary of the end of hostilities in WW1, All Saints' bell ringers will be setting the bells pealing for 2 minutes in celebration of this fact.  They will also be playing at 7.00pm for five minutes to mark the signing of the Armistice.

Once the Service has finished the Parade will march off up the High Street, around the Obelisk and return back down the High Street, where Sir Colin Terry will take the Salute near the gold postboxes and the Parade will then return to the British Legion Headquarters.

Everyone is welcome to attend this very moving service.  Ceremony of Remembrance order of service will be handed out to members of the public while stocks last.

Please note that as a result of this Service and Parade, Marlow High Street and Marlow Bridge will be closed to all traffic and parking from 08.00hrs to 12.15hrs.  Please note that if you park your car in the High Street before 08.00hrs and do not remove it by this time, the Police will have your vehicle removed.  Thank you for your understanding on this very special occasion.
