On Sunday 13 November, people across the country will commemorate Remembrance Sunday, and events are taking place across Calderdale to mark this important occasion.
To coincide with the launch of the national Royal British Legion’s 2022 Poppy Appeal, Calderdale Council has announced plans for this year’s Remembrance, with the Council hosting a full Remembrance Sunday event in Halifax.
The main focus of commemorations in Halifax will be the Remembrance Sunday parade from Halifax Town Hall to the Cenotaph near Halifax Minster. Dignitaries and veterans will assemble from 10am and the parade will march via Princess Street, Southgate, Horton Street, Square Road and King Street, before assembling at the Cenotaph at around 10.40am.
The Cenotaph service will start at 10.45am, with a two-minute silence at 11am. A further service of remembrance will then take place inside the Minster.
Events are also taking place in towns and villages in Calderdale, with services at war memorials or local Churches across the borough.
