Remembrance Sunday Service and Parade

Dover War Memorial

Sunday 12 November 2017


At 11.00am on Sunday 12 November 2017, 99 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. The Memorial Service will be conducted by the Mayor’s Honorary Chaplain, Reverend Dr John Walker and will be followed by the laying of wreaths. The parade will then march back through the town to the Market Square. Councillor Neil Rix, the Right Worshipful Town Mayor of Dover will take the salute at St. Mary’s Church.

Service sheets will be available to members of the public at the service. Priory Road will be closed temporarily from the roundabout to the Ladywell traffic lights while the service is in progress.

The Royal British Legion Dover White Cliffs Branch will be laying out the Legion’s Memorial Crosses in the Garden of Remembrance and receiving donations in support of the 2017 Poppy Appeal from Friday 27th October. Please give generously.
