When you go home,
Tell them of us and say,
For your tomorrow
We gave our today.
They shall not grow old as we who are left grow old,
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn;
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
The 2020 Armistice due to take place on Wednesday 11th November has been cancelled due to Covid-19 and the implications and risk to participants. The commitee has consulted with the various authorities and acting upon their advice has taken the difficult decision to cancel this year’s parade. This is a double blow for us as this year’s parade was to be the start of our Centenary Year (Nov 2020 - Nov 2021)
All being well we will be back bigger and better in 2021. We will keep you up to date as things progress.
