Dereham Town Council is indebted to the Royal British Legion for their help in organising this year’s parade which will start from the Cherry Tree car park from 10.15 am onwards, marching off at 10.52. Military, Royal British Legion and ex-service association standard bearers will attend.

There will be a short service at the War Memorial, led by the Reverend Canon Paul Cubitt, followed by wreath laying and sounding of the Last Post. Wreaths will be laid by Deputy Lord Lieutenant Mary Rudd, Dereham Town Mayor Cllr Hugh King, Breckland Council Vice Chairman Peter Wilkinson, along with representatives of the regular and territorial armed forces, ex-service associations, uniformed public and voluntary services, cadet forces, youth groups and members of the public.

The parade will then continue to St Nicholas Church for a service at 11.45am
