GET INVOLVED IN THE FLEETWOOD HOMECOMING PARADE
As you are probably aware 2018 marks the end of the Centenary of the First World War. Across the country events are happening to help commemorate this.
In Fleetwood and the rest of Wyre, a number of community projects and events will take place from October up until Armistice Day, which this year of course coincides with Remembrance Sunday on 11th November.
Following this reflective and nationally significant day, Wyre Council and Fleetwood TOWN Council is organising with its partners a mass participation community parade, The Final Homecoming, to be held in Fleetwood on Monday 12th November from 11am.
This will be a celebratory event, which encourages a vibrant mix of participation, including schools, local residents, community groups, veterans and serving personnel, re-enactment groups and local musicians. It is expected that there will be up to 1000 people parading, and will make a colourful and creative spectacle. The primary messages of the parade will be; cohesion, hope and peace.
The parade is to start from Memorial Park, go through the town centre, turn into Bold Street, up and around the Mount, and finish in Marine Gardens with food, music performances and re-enactments, sited in and around The Final Homecoming marquee.
There is an opportunity for residents to take part in the parade and support the event by volunteering for a number of roles. and share in what will be a truly memorable day.
