Lest we forget - Remember our fallen heroes this Sunday

Remembrance Sunday

Remembrance Day parade and service on 12 November

Wear your poppy with pride and join us on Remembrance Sunday when the nation will pause to remember and pay tribute to heroes who gave their lives serving our nation, veterans and current serving members of the armed forces. 

Preparations for this year’s Remembrance Day Parade and Service started last week when the Mayor of Harrow, Cllr Margaret Davine laid wreaths at 10 war memorials in the borough.  

On 12 November, join us at our annual Remembrance Day Parade led by the Glen Trew Pipe Band. The parade will leave St Ann's at 10am and make its way to the Civic Centre by 10.45am.

The Mayor of Harrow, Cllr Margaret Davine will lead the Remembrance Sunday Service outside the Civic Centre War Memorial where a two minutes’ silence will be held at 11am to remember those who gave their lives for our tomorrow. She will be joined by dignitaries, servicemen, veterans and local youth organisations.

The Mayor of Harrow, Cllr Margaret Davine said:

“This is a time for us to pay our respects to the men and women in our armed forces and thank them for their bravery and sacrifices to give us the freedom so many of us take for granted. It is also a time to reflect upon those caught up in and affected by current conflicts.

“This Remembrance Sunday, I hope that you will all join me to remember our fallen heroes, and support the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal by wearing your poppy with pride.”

The occasion also includes a Schools Remembrance Day Poetry Competition where the winning poems will be read out during the service.
