Patchway pauses for Remembrance Parade and Service
Updated: Nov 21
On 19th November 2023, Patchway remembered the fallen at a well-attended Remembrance Service held at the Norman Scott Park Cenotaph and Memorial Garden.
The Service was preceded by a March from The Parade, down Coniston Road and into the Park with representatives of the Royal British Legion, the Mayor of Patchway Cllr Dayley Lawrence, councillors from Patchway Town Council, the Navy, Army and Airforce cadets, the 2nd Patchway Scouts, and Jack Lopresti, MP for Filton and Bradley Stoke. Plus other organised groups and residents from across the town.
The poignant Service conducted by Alison Smith included the Laying of Wreaths at the Cenotaph, prayers, hymns and the Last Post. The Salvation Army Band played for the hymns and wreath-laying, and the Service was concluded with a rousing National Anthem.
Mayor of Patchway, Cllr Dayley Lawrence said, ‘I was proud to be part of the fantastic Remembrance Parade and Service at Patchway with representatives from all the Services, Cadets, Scouts, local Councillors, and our MP. It was a fantastic turnout from the town's residents along the route and at Scott Park Cenotaph for the Service’.
After organising the Parade and Service for three years, Steve Goodfellow will be handing over the baton for the 17 November 2024 event, and we all thank Steve for his service for the past three Parades.
