Remembrance Sunday Service and Parade

Dover War Memorial

Sunday 13 November 2016

 

 

At 11.00am on Sunday 13 November 2016, 98 years on from the signing of the Armistice in 1918, Dover will remember all the servicemen and women who have given their lives in the service of their country.

A parade of standards, veterans and other organisations will assemble outside Marks & Spencer in Biggin Street at 10.30am and march to the War Memorial in front of the Maison Dieu House where two minutes silence will be observed at 11.00am.

This year we are especially pleased to welcome the P&O Choir to lead the singing during the service.  At the end of the Memorial Service (conducted by the Honorary Chaplain, Reverend John Walker) the parade will march back through the town to the Market Square. Councillor Neil Rix, the Right Worshipful Town Mayor of Dover and Speaker of the Cinque Ports, will take the salute at St. Mary’s Church.

Service sheets will be available to members of the public at the service, alternatively click here to download your own.  Priory Road will be closed temporarily from the roundabout to the Ladywell traffic lights while the service is in progress.
