Skipton Town Council and the Skipton Branch of the Royal British Legion would like to invite local organisations to attend Skipton’s annual Remembrance Sunday parade and church service.
Guests who wish to participate in the parade should assemble on Bunkers Hill (just off Newmarket Street) no later than 10.15am. If you do not wish to march, please congregate at 10.45am at the war memorial on Skipton High Street for the playing of the Last Post and laying of wreaths at 11.00am.
The Parade will be followed by a service in Holy Trinity Church on the High Street then re-form on the Bailey to march off, make the salute then be dismissed on Otley Street.
To celebrate the 100th year anniversary of the unveiling of the Cenotaph, Skipton Town Council have undertaken a project to involve the schools and community groups in the Remembrance commemorations through art. The students at the schools and community groups painted individual stones to make up large poppy sculptures. They have been laid on the Holy Trinity lawn during the week of Remembrance
