Remembrance Day parade and service 2012

The Mayor of Northampton Councillor Roger Conroy will lead a procession of councillors and town dignitaries from the Guildhall to All Saints' Church as part of this year's Remembrance Day Parade and Service on Sunday 11 November.
The main Parade will form in two parts on the Market Square.  The Northampton Pipe Band will lead the first part of the march to All Saints’ Church at 9.30am and will be followed by the second part led by the Air Training Corps Band at 9.35am.  The Parade will join with the Mayor's procession at All Saints' Church for the Divine Service which starts at 10am.

After the Divine Service the Parade will assemble outside the Memorial Gardens in George Row.  They will be joined by clergy, the choir of All Saints' Church and the Salvation Army Band.  The traditional two minutes silence will begin at 11am at the first stroke of All Saints' clock.  The laying of wreaths and the Remembrance Service will then follow.
After the Service the Parade headed by the Northampton Pipe Band will make its way to the Guildhall to make the Salute before progressing up St Giles Street, into Fish Street and then reaching its final destination in Abington Street.
The Mayor of Northampton Councillor Roger Conroy said: "Remembrance Sunday is a very special day that allows us to remember those who have sacrificed their lives for our country.  It is also a time for us to think of those who are injured and of the men and women who are serving our country today.”
