Remembrance Day Parade and Service in Daventry

Remembrance Day Parade and Service in Daventry

The Remembrance Day Parade and Service will be held in Daventry on Sunday 11th November 2018, hosted by Daventry Town Council in partnership with The Royal British Legion.

The Remembrance Day parade will commence at 10.30am from St James Infant School, proceeding along Tavern Lane, the High Street, Abbey Street, and will finish at the War Memorial where a short service will be held to include the calling of the Roll of Honour and laying of wreaths.

Members of the public are also invited to attend a Remembrance Day service at the Holy Cross Church which will be lead by Daventry's Churches Together.

Following the service, the parade will then make its way back to St. James' Infant School.

Cllr Lynn Jones, Mayor of Daventry said, "We are pleased that so many veterans, serving personnel, uniformed organisation, civic dignitaries and members of the public attend Daventry's Remembrance Parade and Service each year to remember those who have served our country. This year is even more prominent given that it is the centenary of the First World War having ended and I have no doubt that this service will be well attended."

Following the service, members of the public are invited to visit Daventry Museum to view the Empty Chair Project display which remembers the 114 Daventry soldiers who died during World War One. Service sheets will be distributed on the day.
