Royal British Legion plan Remembrance Sunday parade
People young and old will be united during the Remembrance Sunday parade next month.
Hundreds of people are expected to turn up at Claredon Road car park, in Borehamwood, on Sunday, November 11 to mark the heroes who fought in World War’s One and Two.
The annual parade will see members of the British Legion, the Scouts, the Air Cadets and the Royal Navy Association marching through Shenley Road, Borehamwood.
People will be able to join in with the parade or can line the streets to watch 20-minute parade as it goes by.
Shenley Road resident Carole Denbigh, a poppy appeal volunteer with the legion, said: “I hope this event will bring people of all different cultures and religions together.
“It is always such an inspiring march and I think it is very important to remember those we lost at war.
“It means a great deal to me and I am very passionate about making sure the sacrifices made by these brave men and women are not forgotten.”
Mrs Denbigh became dedicated to volunteering with the Royal British Legion, in Shenley Road, after hearing about how her uncle, Phillip Brown, was killed in Italy during WW2.
The 62-year-old was born before he died, but said she felt inspired to ensure that his legacy still lives on.
The marching parade will end up at the War Memorial, outside MacDonald’s in Shenley Road, Borehamwood.
People will then be invited to the All Saints Church, in Shenley Road, for a memorial service.
