Enderby’s Remembrance Day Parade will take place Sunday, 13th November, commencing at 10.25am outside of the Enderby Golf & Leisure Club, Mill Lane.
The Procession will pass through The Cross onto Chapel Street where the younger guiding and scouting groups will go into the United Reformed Church. Older members will return back down The Cross, Broad Street and Blaby Road to The Parish Church where the Book of Remembrance for the Village is kept and read as part of the service. All are welcome at both churches.
The Council’s thanks go to 1st Enderby Guides and Rachel Spadaccini for organising the Remembrance Parade each year and the Council’s Groundstaff for putting up the poppies and signs in advance.
This year, Remembrance poppies adorn approximately 100 lampposts throughout the Village creating a wonderful display to commemorate the fallen. In addition, Enderby Parish Council has purchased two commemorative military figures which have been erected on Townsend Road, adjacent to the memorial bench seat which was installed in 2020.
The figures, an ‘unknown Tommy’ and an ‘unknown women in war’ will serve as a permanent, touching reminder to those killed in service, both historically and in more recent times. Every Tommy figure purchased helps to support veterans by keeping them in paid employment.
