The Bedworth Armistice Parade Group Committee wish to thank The Bedworth Branch of the Royal British Legion for delivering the Centenary Armistice Parade, and for working way outside of their comfort zone in delivering the service to a crowd far in excess of that which was anticipated.
We were of course left disappointed by not having a bigger involvement on the Centenary Parade of 2018. With the control for the Centenary Parade of 2018 being in the hands of the 'Bedworth Branch of The Royal British Legion' we could only offer our services...which we did; and were proud to fulfil the late requests for the organising and funding of the Fly Past, Poppy Drop and one or two other small items.
We would also like to take this opportunity to apologise for any misleading information offered by us or any other organisations which may have caused confusion, and look forward to our 2019 parade with determination.
The next Armistice Parade for Monday 11th November 2019 will be our 98th Parade in Bedworth, and the freshly rejuvenated Armistice Committee (2017) is already looking to build on the stunning platform left by the era's of Frank Parsons, Jessie Owen and latterly with Gil Leach and have already set to work on our future, with our own Individual Centenary taking place in three years time.
We sincerely hope you will be there to join us for 2019, and we await your comments, and offers of support, which will help direct us to provide the very best parade for the Ex-Service and Service Men and Women which they thoroughly deserve.
