We will remember them on 10 November
Harrow will fall silent on Remembrance Sunday as hundreds of people pay their respects to the members of the armed forces who lost their lives fighting for their country - and our freedoms.
A poignant parade and service (the second largest in London) will take place at the Civic Centre on Sunday, November 10 - and everyone is welcome to attend. As always, we invite former servicemen and women – or their relatives - to wear their medals and take part.
The parade starts at Harrow Town Centre near Katie’s Statue and will march towards the Civic Centre from 10am.
Mayor of Harrow Cllr Nitin Parekh said:
“Please do join us to mark Remembrance Day and wear your poppy with pride to pay tribute to those who gave their lives for your tomorrow.
“This is about everyone in the borough coming together from all walks of life to remember. We also think of all of those affected by current conflicts.”
The services have extra significance this year as 2019 marked the 100th anniversary of the 1919 Peace Treaty, the 80th anniversary of the start of World War II and the 75 years since the D-Day landings.
