Bridlington remembers

Bridlington will once again remember those who have lost their lives in conflict.

Tomorrow, Remembrance Day, will see a service and the traditional two minutes silence at 11am the War Memorial in Quay Road.

Sunday will feature the Remembrance Sunday Parade.

Barry Moody MBE, of the Royal British Legion explained why it was important for people to take part in remembrance events.

“The situation doesn’t ease up at all, we are still losing people in active service. It’s not all just about the two world wars it’s also about all the conflicts since.”

The Remembrance Sunday Parade will move off from the Town Hall at 10.25am and make its way to the War Memorial where a service conducted by the Reverend Jonathan Couper of Christ Church.

The salute, will be taken by East Riding of Yorkshire Deputy Lieutenant Joe Goodhart.

The parade wil then march back to the Royal British Legion on Hilderthorpe Road.

‘The Children of the Mist’ pipe band will lead this year’s parade, and a brass band will also be present to lead hymns.

The number of people supporting both the Remembrance events has steadiliy increased in recent years and a similar turn out is expected.
