Remembrance Sunday

Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day 2018 Centenary Commemoration of End WWI

All local organisations and residents are invited to join the Town Mayor Peter Wright, Members of the Town Council, the Royal British Legion and Rivington and Adlington Brass Band for the Annual Parade and Service of Remembrance on Sunday 11th November 2018.


The Town Mayor will lay a wreath at the Locomotive Estate War Memorial at 11.00am before the Parade begins. Please note that at this point the road will still be open to traffic and anyone deciding to attend must take responsibility for their own safety.

The Parade leaves promptly at 11.40am from outside the RMI Club on Ramsbottom Road, will be marshalled and subject to a temporary road closure. It will proceed along Victoria Road, Church Street and Lee Lane, then on to Lever Park Avenue for the Service at the Garden of Remembrance at 12.15pm, returning via Chorley New Road to Horwich RMI for dismissal.

Please note that although the Parade will not be stopping at the Public Hall, representatives from the Royal British Legion will lay a wreath in the Council Chamber after observing the silence at 11.00am outside the building where members of the public are welcome to join them.

Poppy wreaths may be ordered by contacting Keith Whittingham on 01204 695772.
