Congleton’s Annual Remembrance Parade, organised by the Congleton Branch of The Royal British Legion, with support from the Town Council, is expected to be bigger than ever on Sunday 11th November, the 100th anniversary of the end of WW1. You can support the parade as it marches from Booth Street, taking in West Street, Antrobus Street, Mill Street, the pedestrian area, Market Square and Bank Street before reaching the Cenotaph in Lawton Street. After the two minutes silence at 11.00am, dignitaries and associations will be called up to lay wreaths.
There will be a 100 year concert in the Town Hall on Friday 9th November, with funds going towards the Cenotaph project to get the 250 missing names included onto a renovated area with more carved plaques. The Poppy Appeal will be launched at the October Makers Market on 27th October.
