CIVIC dignitaries, servicemen and women, service and ex-service organisations, faith leaders and uniformed organisations, will take part in Manchester’s Remembrance Day procession and service on Sunday 9 November 2014.

“Remembrance Sunday gives us time to reflect on past and present conflicts and is a chance for us all to express our respect for the men and women who have given their lives in the fight for freedom."

At 10.15am a parade led by the Greater Manchester Police Band including senior representatives from the Navy, Army, Air Force, Royal British Legion, Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment, Reserve Forces and 207 Field Hospital will depart from outside the Radisson Hotel on Peter Street.

The parade will join the Lord Mayor of Manchester Councillor Sue Cooley, the Lord Lieutenant and civic dignitaries at the newly restored cenotaph in St Peter’s Square, opposite the Cooper Street entrance of the town hall, for the Remembrance Day service at 10.55am.

Also present at the service will be faith leaders, including representatives from the Muslim, Afro-Caribbean Christian Churches, Sikh, Hindu, Jain and Jewish communities along with clergy from the Free Church, Church of England and Catholic Church; as well as elected members, consuls and magistrates.

After the service, the parade will then return to Albert Square for the March Past of Service Organisations.

Lord Mayor of Manchester Councillor Sue Cooley said: “Remembrance Sunday gives us time to reflect on past and present conflicts and is a chance for us all to express our respect for the men and women who have given their lives in the fight for freedom.

“2014 marks the centenary of the outbreak of World War One and rightly our thoughts will turn to all those who lost their lives or were effected by one of the worst conflicts the world has ever seen.

“However, while it is important we take the time to remember the devastating consequences of historic conflicts and the enormous sacrifices made by all members of the armed forces, I’d ask everyone to also spare a thought for those still risking life and limb in conflicts across the globe and the families they have left behind.”

Big turnout as usual. Wasn't sure how it was going to work with the new location. After the parade, the march past head around Central Library, Mount Street and then entered Albert Square so they could give an 'eyes right' to errrr...a huge Santa! The parade was followed [literally] by the Christmas markets and an army of workmen. I know Christmas comes early but it's Rememberance Sunday FFS!
