Halewood will come together on Sunday 10 November 2019, to honour those we lost this Remembrance Day. For anyone interested in participating, it will commence at The Hollies Centre from 10.00am.
The Mayor of Halewood, Councillor Clare Rose, will lead the short parade from The Hollies Centre at 10.25 a.m. giving tribute on Remembrance Sunday for service men and women who have lost their lives in times of conflict. The parade will march to St. Nicholas’ Church for a short service from 10.45 a.m. which will include the traditional red poppy wreath laying and silence in commemoration of the departed
This year, the Town Council has also supported the use of a white poppy wreath to be laid “from the people of Halewood”. There are three elements to the meaning of white poppies. They represent remembrance for all victims of war, a commitment to peace and a challenge to attempts to glamorise or celebrate war.
