Remembrance Parade and Service will take place in Marlow on Sunday 13th November 2022 at the Memorial on the Causeway.
The Remembrance Parade & Service is scheduled to take place on the 14th November 2021, Covid restrictions permitting.
The Parade will leave from the Royal British Legion Headquarters at approximately 10.35am and arrive at the Memorial on the Causeway for 10.45am when the Service will commence. The High Street and Marlow Bridge will be closed to traffic from 08.30am, with no parking from 08.00am. All roads leading onto the High Street will be closed at that point. Once the Parade and Service has finished the High Street and the Bridge will be opened up for traffic.
Lord Lieutenant, the Countess Howe will be taking part and take the Salute at the end of the Service from the Podium near the gold postbox in the High Street.
Due to Covid-19, the Town Council had taken the decision earlier in the year to cancel the usual Remembrance Parade and Service. As both Marlow Town Council and the Royal British Legion were determined to ensure that Remembrance was honoured, it was decided to have a ‘virtual Service’ instead. Organisations were invited to lay wreaths at the All Saints’ church memorial which was to be filmed by Tim Ashburner of the BBC and Marlow FM.
Filming took place in All Saints’ Church over two days observing the current Government guidelines, Dave Bull, Rector of All Saints’, Rev’d Nick Thompson from Marlow Methodist Church and Anthea Wratten from River Church all took part. Countess Elizabeth Howe, Deputy Lieutenant laid a wreath on behalf of Her Majesty the Queen, together with the Andrew Farncombe Esq. High Sheriff of Buckinghamshire, Cllr Richard Scott on behalf of Buckinghamshire Council and Cllr Bob Johnson, Deputy Mayor of Marlow. The President of the Marlow Branch of the Royal British Legion, John Chapman, MBE and Chairman of the Royal British Legion Club, Paul Tyler laid wreaths. Representatives from the Air Force, Royal Marine, cadets from 1811 Squadron, Air Training Corp and Marlow Sea Cadets also attended. Many organisations that would normally attend the traditional event at the War Memorial were in attendance.
