Memorial ceremony to be held

Bridlington will prepare to honour its war dead this Saturday with a ceremony at the town’s Garden of Remembrance.

The short service to rededicate the garden in Wellington Road, will allow anyone who wishes to remember a loved one to place a cross in the special area.

Saturday’s service is the first of three memorial events this year the last being the Remembrance Sunday Parade on the 13th of November.

This year marks the 90th anniversary of the founding of the Royal British Legion and members of the community are invited to join ex-service members in a two minute silence at the War Memorial at 11am on the 11th of November.

The Remembrance Sunday Parade on 13th November will be led by ‘The Children of the Mist’ pipe band, and will be followed by a service at the War Memorial conducted by The Reverend Jonathan Couper of Christ Church in Bridlington.

The parade will continue after the service to The Royal British Legion on Wilderthorpe Road and then on to Christ Church where a salute will be taken by the Deputy Lord Lieutenant.

The rededication service this Saturday will take place at 10.50am and those wishing to take part in the Remembrance Sunday parade should meet at the town hall before 10.25am on 11th November.
