THERE are a number of road closures you need to be aware of ahead of tomorrow’s Remembrance Sunday ceremony.

The annual event honouring those who have fallen in war takes place at the cenotaph at Bridgefoot tomorrow, Sunday.

Mayor of Warrington Cllr Jean Flaherty will join war veterans, religious leaders and members of the armed forces for the remembrance ceremony.

The parade will step off from Warrington Town Hall at 10.20am and make its way to the cenotaph via Springfield Street, Palmyra Square South, Suez Street, Ryland Street, Bridge Street and onto the cenotaph at approximately 10.30am

The service will begin at the war memorial at 10.59am, with the sounding of the Last Post and the laying of the first wreath by the mayor

At 11am, Warrington will observe the national two-minute silence marked by a bugler. Immediately following the silence, the cenotaph service will commence led by Canon June Steventon.

Then at approximately 11.25am, the parade will reform and return to the Town Hall.

Members of the public who wish to attend the ceremony are asked to access and exit the cenotaph via the marked crossing points and arrive by 10.45am, prior to the civic party taking their positions at the cenotaph.

Cllr Flaherty said: “It is so important that we never forget the sacrifices made by so many during times of conflict.

“Remembrance Sunday gives us the opportunity to honour all those who have sacrificed so much, and to pay tribute to our armed forces, past and present.”
