Remembrance Day North Tawton 2014

Remembrance Day Parade will be led by The North Tawton Branch of The Royal British Legion who will be present in The Square at 10:15 on Sunday 9 November 2014, to collect the wreaths and posies.

The Remembrance Day Parade, to include North Tawton’s uniformed organisations, will commence from The Square at 10:35 and proceed into St Peter’s Church, North Tawton, for a memorial service led by the Revd Nick Weldon and the Revd Philip Wagstaff.

The commemorations will conclude with the laying of the wreaths and posies at the North Tawton War Memorial, which was moved to the cemetery, Exeter Street, in 1948. Originally, the War Memorial was erected to stand in North Tawton Memorial Park, Barton Lane, both of which bequeathed to the town by Frank Henson Gibbings.

All members of the community are welcome to gather together in remembrance.
