Parade To Start Remembrance Service

A parade to remember Coventry’s war dead will be held on Sunday before a commemoration service at the Memorial Park.

Coventry’s Lord Mayor, Cllr Sheila Collins, will join representatives of different churches and servicemen in the city for the walk on Sunday. She is urging as many people as possible to come along to the service which follows it.

The parade will start in Spencer Avenue, Earlsdon at 10.30am and lead to the park.

The memorial service will be held at 10.55am, conducted by the Bishop of Warwick, Rt Rev Anthony Priddis.

He will be supported by the Roman Catholic Dean, the Rev Fr Robert Wright and the President of Coventry free Federal Church Council, Derek Noel.

There will also be a service conducted by Rev Tony Burford, curate at Holy Trinity Church at the Communal Grave at London Road Cemetery at 3pm.

Cllr Collins, who hopes to go to both services, said;

“I hope many local people will join us on Sunday, as we pay tribute to those who have given their lives in the service of our country.

“It is special time to honour their memory and to remember that without their sacrifice we would not have the freedom we enjoy today.”
