[28 OCT 98] RUGBY BOROUGH COUNCIL PRESS RELEASE
Remembrance Sunday Service And Parade

Rugby’s annual Remembrance Service and Parade will be held on Sunday 8 November 1998 at the War Memorial Gates and Garden of Remembrance in Hillmorton Road. The Mayor of Rugby and the Civic Party, comprising Honorary Freeman, Councillors, Officers and representatives of the Warwickshire County Council and Parish Councils, will walk in procession from the rear of Lesley Souter House, Whitehall Road to the Memorial Gates to participate in the service and parade.

On this occasion some 20 contingents will take part comprising the British Legion, Territorial Army, ex-service organisations, Military Cadets, civic and voluntary organisations, Scouts, Guides and the Girls Brigade. The units will assemble in Hillmorton Road between the Recreation Ground and Temple Street to be reviewed by the Mayor at 10.30am before they march on parade in front of the Memorial Gates to the music of the band of the Rugby Detachment of the Army Cadet Force.

The service and ceremony will last from 10.50am to about 11.20am during which there will be the usual two minutes silence, the laying of wreaths at the Memorial Gates by the Mayor, any members of the general public wishing to do so and the units on parade. This will be followed by a "March Past" of all those on parade. Music for the service will be provided by the Salvation Army Band.

The service and parade will disrupt the traffic flow and diversions will be in operation under the control of the Police. Hillmorton Road (from Temple Street to Moultrie Road) and Whitehall Road will be closed to traffic from 9.45am to about 11.20am. Traffic wishing to visit The Ken Marriott Leisure Centre will be directed to the Leisure Centre Access road by using Moultrie Road and/or Hillmorton Road (from the town centre side). Vehicles to and from the Leisure Centre will be halted by police during the two minute silence.
