A civic parade and Remembrance Day service, organised by Kirklees Council, will be held in Huddersfield town centre on Sunday November 14.

Last year there was a limited programme of events due to Covid-19 but this year communities are once again planning parades and wreath-laying ceremonies. 

Mayor of Kirklees Clr Nigel Patrick will lead the Huddersfield Service of Remembrance at Huddersfield Parish Church on Sunday at 10.50am.

The parade will start from Huddersfield Town Hall at 10.30am and will re-form after the service and return to the Town Hall. Those entering church will be required to wear a mask at all times, unless exempt. 

An Armistice Day service on Thursday November 11 is being organised by the Royal British Legion at Greenhead Park in Huddersfield.

There will be a national two-minute silence at 11am on Armistice Day which people are encouraged to observe wherever they may be.

The Mayor said: “Remembrance is an important way for us all to say thank you to those who have served in the past and at the present time.

“I’m pleased that we are able to once again invite people to join us in paying their respects at civic services, which is something I know is important to local people.”

There is practical help and advice to anyone organising an event on the Kirklees Council website HERE.
