Welcome to the Armistice News Page.  We’ll try and keep you up to date as things happen, though we are living in strange and unprecedented times and we don’t know from one day to the next what the rules are going to be.  However, we are forward planning on the assumption that the Centenary Parade will go ahead and we’ll post relevant news on this page.  The News Editor is Pastor Paul Whitehouse  email:  news@bedwortharmisticeday.org

WE NEED YOUR  HELP.  The Armistice Committee have undertaken their biggest challenge yet – a new permanent saluting dais on the Rye Piece Ringway, to be known as the Peace Podium.  Committee member and Vice Chairman Phil Godden (who designed and oversaw the Bedworth Armistice Wall and Gates) has drawn up plans for the saluting base.  It will be in keeping with the solemnity of the Parade and will compliment the Bedworth Wall and Gates.  We will be collecting throughout the late spring and summer (once lockdown lifts) for donations towards the new dais and to deliver the Bedworth Centenary Armistice Parade.  The generosity of Bedworth residents and their pride and love for the Armistice Parade (the biggest one in Britain) will be the foundation upon which the Podium will be built.  With your past and present help we have put Bedworth on the map, with your help now we will keep Bedworth at the forefront of this country’s Armistice Day parades.
