Planning underway for Remembrance Parade

Details have been revealed showing what Newbury's Remembrance Parade this year could look like.

The event, which will take place on Sunday 8 November, will be discussed at an upcoming Newbury Town Council meeting.


Among the ideas being discussed is that the parade and service would operate at a heavily reduced capacity, with no more than 30 army representatives on parade and only a Standard Bearer and Wreath Layer.


The parade will be starting from the Royal British Legion at Pelican Lane and finishing in the Market Place ready for the service to commence as normal.


There would also be restrictions on the number of people who would be able to be a part of the Civic Party, particularly due to the Town Hall not being open to the public yet.


Members of the public would be encouraged to wear face coverings and socially distance.
