Remembrance Sunday in Workington

Sunday 11th November 2018 marks 100 years since the end of the First World War.

The parades this year promise to be particularly poignant and will be attended by many local schools and organisations. Help remember those who served and fell.

There are two parades; one in Harrington and one in Workington.

Harrington Parade

The parade in Harrington will assemble at 9.30am at the Royal British Legion on Salterbeck Road. The parade will process to St. Mary’s Church on Rectory Close for a service at 10am led by Reverend Julia Powley.

Workington Parade

The Workington parade will assemble at 1.45pm on Pow Street and set off at 2pm.

The parade will process to Vulcan Park for a service at the Cenotaph, before continuing to St John’s Church on Washington Street for a service by Father Robert Hannaford at approx. 3pm. The Church service, this year, will also feature performances and readings by children from Victoria Junior School.

Beacon Lighting

Vulcan Park from 6.50pm for a brief opening of the ceremony, before listening to The Last Post at 6.55pm. The Duffield Beacon will then be lit at 7pm. This ceremony is part of a national campaign to light 1,000 beacons across the UK to symbolise the ‘light of hope’ that emerged from the darkness of war.
