STOURBRIDGE Royal British Legion has confirmed plans for this year’s Remembrance Sunday parade.

The event, remembering those who lost their lives fighting for their country, will take place in Mary Stevens Park, Norton, Stourbridge, on Sunday November 12, at 10.45am ahead of a minute’s silence at 11am and a service and wreath-laying ceremony at the cenotaph.

Veterans will then parade around the bandstand and back up Queen’s Drive.

The parade is expected to comprise around 30 40 veterans, Army cadets, Army reservists, police cadets, the RAF marching band, Brownies, Scouts and Guides.

Thousands of people are expected to turn out for the event which Mick Thompson, chairman of Stourbridge Royal British Legion, said “gets bigger and bigger each year”.

Services of Remembrance will also be held at cenotaphs across the borough including Dudley’s big civic event in Dudley town centre which is traditionally attended by the Mayor of Dudley.
