Remembrance Parade 2017 in Hurstpierpoint

Remembrance Day poppy, Royal British Legion

By Trevor Evans, RBL Parade Marshal

This year’s Remembrance Parade will take place on Sunday 12th November 2017. The parade will form up at 10.35am at South Avenue. Those gathered will then march through the High Street to the War Memorial.

If wet, the parade will meet at the Army Cadets Drill Hall which is situated behind the (currently closed) Co-op on the High Street.

Sussex Police have advised us that they are no longer able to provide assistance for the road closure and traffic control – and that we have to find our own marshals. I would ask those motorists and passengers travelling through the High Street at that time to accept a short delay to their journey whilst the parade takes place.

In addition, there will also be an informal gathering on Saturday 11th November 2017 at the War Memorial at 11am – all our welcome.
