Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day

Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day

This Year Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday fall on the same day and this year commemorates the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.

Dunstable remembers the men and women of the town who have suffered or died in war.  This year’s Remembrance Parade and Service will be held on Sunday 11 November 2018.

The parade of the town’s ex-service and uniformed organisations will assemble in Grove House Gardens (at the rear of Grove House) at 10.15 am and will then march to the War Memorial in Priory Gardens, via High Street North to the crossroads and traffic lights, then down High Street South to Priory House where the Town Mayor will take the salute. The parade will then form up at the memorial for the Act of Remembrance and wreath-laying ceremony at 11.00 am.  At the end of the ceremony everyone is invited to attend a short Service of Remembrance in the Priory Church.

Members of the public are most welcome to take part in Dunstable’s Act of Remembrance. Dunstable Town Council are once again keen to involve as many young people of the town as possible and would like to encourage representatives from schools in the town to take part in the parade and wreath laying.
