PLANS for Penarth's Royal British Legion branch's Remembrance Day parade have been unveiled.

Remembrance Sunday - and the 11am silence - is observed to mark the Armistice that came into force at 11am on November 11, 1918, ending of the First World War.

This year, Remembrance Sunday will be celebrated on November 10, when a parade will form up in Station Approach at 10am to march off at 10.10am to the Garden of Remembrance, at the corner of Alexandra Gardens on Rectory Road.

There a wreath laying ceremony will take place, and two minutes silence will be observed.

The procession will then proceed up Windsor Terrace and down Stanwell Road into Victoria Square, and from there to All Saints Church for the parade to fall out and enter the church.

There the Service of Remembrance will begin at 10.50am.

The service will be conducted by the Rev Alison (Ali) Reeves.

After the service the parade will reform and march up Victoria Road onto Stanwell Road and onto Windsor Road to the Ex Servicemen’s Club, for the parade to stand down.

Penarth residents are invited to join the parade and lay a wreath at the Garden of Remembrance, and to head to the club for refreshments and for an afternoon of music.

At 10.55am on November 11, the Legion will be holding a short ceremony at the junction of Windsor Road and Glebe Street.

The Legion will then proceed to St Augustine’s Church to lay a wreath on the Town War Memorial.

Over the course of the week, members of the Penarth Branch of the Royal British Legion and supporters will be out raising money for the Poppy Appeal, the Legion's main fundraising event of the year.

The Legion provides financial, social and emotional support to all those who have served or are currently serving in the Armed Forces, and their dependants - many of whom will need mental and physical support for the rest of their lives.

The Legion is always on the lookout for volunteers to help.

To volunteer, visit their caravan in the town centre or ring 20708560 and ask to speak to Richard James.
