Remembrance services in Launceston

A number of events have been planned by the Launceston branch of the Royal British Legion to commemorate Remembrance in the town.

On Thursday, November 11, a two-minute silence to commemorate Armistice Day at the War Memorial will begin at 11am.

This will be followed on Remembrance Sunday, November 14, with a parade and service. With a change in road closures this year, the parade will assemble and form up in the Castle Grounds at 10.15am. If anyone has problems with the slope at the entrance to the Castle, there is a wide pedestrian area, where they can wait and then join in with their contingent.

At 10.45am the parade will march up Western Road to the Square, where the parade will form as normal around the Square.

The parade marshal will invited members of the public to lay wreaths once the official parade members have placed theirs.

After the service the procession will march down High Street and then on to Church Street for the march past in front of the Memorial.

They will then march back down to the Castle and into the grounds where members can disperse. Unfortunately there will be no reception in the Town Hall this year, due to COVID restrictions.

Launceston Life will be covering the parade with a live video on Facebook, from around 10.50am on Sunday. To tune in, make sure you're following the Launceston Life Facebook page so you're notified of the video when it begins.
