Remembrance Sunday service

Thursday, 11 November 2021 08:14

The 2021 Douglas Borough Council Remembrance Sunday service will be held on Sunday November 14.


A parade will form at Market Hill at 9.15am and move off at 9.20am via Duke Street through Strand Street, Castle Street, Marina Road, and Church Road Marina to St Thomas’ Church where, on arrival, the parade will file through the Finch Road entrance.


The church service will commence at 10.00am and be coordinated by the Rev Liz Hull with the Mayor’s Chaplain, the Rev Dr Michael Brydon, offering prayers.


The service will end at 10.40am to allow time for those present to make their way to the War Memorial to observe the two minutes’ silence at 11am, which will be followed by the laying of wreaths.


Due to the Promenade Regeneration Works there will be no parade from the Church to the War Memorial.


The final parade will then form on the Promenade roadway alongside the War Memorial and proceed along the north-bound carriageway turning right on to Granville Street finishing at Duke Street. A salute by Her Worship the Mayor, Freeman Mrs Raina Chatel, JP, will be taken along the route.


In the event of adverse weather either or both of the parades may be abandoned. The observance of the two minutes’ silence at the War Memorial will, however, proceed.


Road closures


The roads immediately surrounding St Thomas’ Church will be closed between 9.30am and 11.00am; Church Road Marina and Harris Promenade will be closed from 10.30am until 12.00 noon.
