Remembrance Day march to disrupt roads and car parks in Bishop's Stortford
The centenary of Remembrance Day will be marked in Bishop’s Stortford with the traditional parade and service in Castle Gardens.
The first official Armistice Day events were held in the grounds of Buckingham Palace on the morning of November 11, 1919, and included a two-minute silence as a mark of respect for those who died in the war and those left behind, setting the trend for a day of remembrance for decades to come.
On Sunday (November 10) servicemen, veterans and civic organisations will assemble at 10am at the Link Road car park before marching to the War Memorial from 10.40am.
There will be multiple road and car park closures in force from 10.30am to 11.30am to allow the parade to pass along the Causeway, so drivers should expect delays.
Entry and exit from the Charringtons, Causeway, Link Road and Jackson Square car parks will be impossible between 10.30am and 11.30am as a result.
On Armistice Day, Monday, November 11, all are invited to the War Memorial at 11am for a two-minute silence and placing of tributes.
