Remembrance Day Commemorations – Sunday 14th November 2021

Dronfield Town Council is pleased to announce that the annual Remembrance Service and Parade will be taking place on Sunday 14th November 2021. This event will be taking place in the usual format.

Everyone is welcome to attend, and we invite former servicemen and women – or their relatives - to wear their medals and take part. The medals awarded to a deceased Service / ex-Service person may be worn on the right breast by a near relative (mother, father, sister, brother, wife, husband, daughter, or son)

Remembrance Day Parade

The service at the War Memorial will be led by Rev Peter Bold.

The programme for the event is as follows:

10:15am – The parade will assemble in School Lane

10:35am – The parade departs

10:45am - The parade arrives at the War Memorial. Hymns will then be sung.

10:55am – The Last Post will be played.

11am – Two minutes silence. The naming of the war dead will be read out before local groups and organisations lay wreaths at the base of the Memorial. This will be followed by further hymns and prayers before the parade makes its way back down the High Street to School Lane.

Following the service, the Parade will move off, halting outside the Parish church to give those wishing to attend the final indoor part of the service the opportunity to enter the Church, prior to the Parade's dismissal in School Lane.

A collection will be taken in the Church, the proceeds of which will be sent to the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.

Please be advised that there will be road closures in place on High Street, Church Street, Lea Road and School Lane to enable the parade to take place.

* While attending the service, people are encouraged to observe social distancing where possible and be respectful of others.
