The traditional Remembrance Day parade will return once again as Kirklees Council hosts a service in Huddersfield on Sunday November 13.

The traditional Remembrance service parade will start from Huddersfield Town Hall at 10.30am and will re-form after the church service and return to the Town Hall.

Mayor of Kirklees Clr Masood Ahmed said: “I am pleased that we will once again be able to invite people to the civic Remembrance events in Kirklees, and welcome everyone to the services.

“Remembrance Sunday gives us all the opportunity to show our gratitude to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom, and also give thanks for those who have served, and are currently serving, in our armed forces.

“I know how important these events are to local people and encourage as many of you as possible to attend and pay your respects.”
