The parade through the town will begin in the Chapel Street car park at 10.20am and will head down King Street, Sage Cross Street, Sherrard Street and Church Street to St Mary’s Parish Church. The service at St Mary’s Church is set to start at 10.50am and will begin with the wreaths being led into the church. Residents are welcome into the church to attend the service.


Following the service at St Mary’s Church, the parade will re-form at approximately 11:50am in Burton Street and will march down Leicester Street, saluting as they pass the dais in the Market Place, to the War Memorial Gardens where wreaths will be laid in a small ceremony.

The Mayor, Councillor Alan Hewson said “The Armed Forces are an integral part of Melton’s history and are important to our community, as the recent Green Plaque awarded to the Defence Animal Training Regiment shows. As a council we are committed to supporting our local Armed Forces and veteran communities as best we can. Coming together on Remembrance Sunday gives us the chance to collectively honour the sacrifices that have been made by those who serve, past and present.


“I encourage those in our community to join me to watch the parade and attend the church service on Remembrance Sunday to show support to our local Armed Forces.”


There will be road closures throughout Melton Mowbray for the event, from 10am until 1pm. You can find the details of the road closures on the Leicester County Council website at: https://www.leicestershire.gov.uk/roads-and-travel/road-maintenance/roadworks-closures-and-diversions

Residents are advised to check the times in case it effects any travel plans. NEMM will bring you a full picture special of the event.
