THIS year the Rhoose Remembrance Day Parade and Service will take place on Sunday, November 12.

The service will be held at the Rhoose Community Hall, Stewart Road, following the laying of the wreaths at 10.55am.

Local adult and youth organisations as well as any individuals are invited to support the parade and service.

Organisations that have a standard are welcome to bare with pride, serving and retired servicemen are welcome and as always will have seats reserved at the front of the hall.

The parade will assemble on Wesley Avenue and be ready to move off promptly at 10.30am. Those who do not wish to join the parade may go straight to the community hall.

Jeffery James, organiser of the event, said: “In recognition of the bravery of all who served it will be most fitting for us to have a good turnout in parade and at the service.

“As well as remembering those who fought and fell in the two World Wars, we will also remember that there are brave young men and women serving in other conflicts and peacekeeping missions around the world and some who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.”

Reverend Melanie Prince will lead the service with representatives of other denominations offering prayers.

The Women’s Institute at the Rhoose Branch has kindly offered to provide light refreshments to all those attending at the end of the service.
