The Final Homecoming Parade 12th November

A Community Parade to mark the Centenary of the end of the First World War will take place on Monday 12th November 2018 in Fleetwood.

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 are 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 hoped that there will be up to 1000 people parading in what will be 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.
We would like to invite you to take part in the parade, and share in what will be a memorable day for the people of Wyre and Lancashire. If you are interested, please contact Debra Thornton at clerk@fleetwoodtowncouncil.org for an expression of interest form
