Harleston Remembrance Day Parade

Sunday 14th November 2021

Parade forms on Exchange Street & Harleston Market Place at 10.30am

Redenhall with Harleston Town Council and the Harleston & District Branch of The Royal British Legion are pleased to announce that the parade is scheduled to take place this year on Sunday 14th November. All groups and organisations that are taking part in the parade should gather on Exchange Street ready to march off at 10.40am.

The parade will march off down the Thoroughfare and into Broad Street for the wreath laying and a short service at the War Memorial. This will be immediately followed by a Remembrance Day Service in St John’s Church.

The parades are always well attended and The Royal British Legion is looking for your continued support in this our RBL Centenary year.

Every year the nation shows its unequivocal support for the Legion’s work through its support of the Poppy Appeal. For this nationwide event of reflection and remembrance, millions of poppies, wreaths and petals are produced to raise money to help our brave service personnel past and present and their families. Remembrance does not glorify war and its symbol, the red poppy, is a sign of both Remembrance and hope for a peaceful future. Poppies are worn as a show of support for the Armed Forces community. Wearing a poppy is never compulsory but is greatly appreciated by those who it is intended to support.
