Organisers of Burnham-On-Sea’s Remembrance Day parade are putting the final finishing touches to this year’s event and have this week issued an appeal for one missing part to the event.
The Remembrance Day parade will be held on Sunday November 12th, and will begin at the rear of B&M at around 10.40am before making its way through the High Street to the war memorial in Love Lane for the 11am ceremony.
John Crosby from Burnham’s Royal British Legion told Burnham-On-Sea.com: “The plans are going well, but we are still searching for a marching band to lead the parade – it would be wonderful to find a local group.”
He added: “It is a big honour to lead the parade and we would dearly like any groups who can help to get in touch.”
Co-organiser Wayne Matthews added: “We expect to have over 100 people taking part in this year’s parade which will be really special. They include the British Legion Bikers, local groups and services, plus children from St Andrew’s School and Burnham Infants School.”
