UPDATE: Remembrance Parade and Service Sunday 10 November 2019.Following discussion with Revd. Dr. James Hughes the Vicar of St Alkmunds it has been agreed that the parade will go ahead at 10.30pm. However the parade will not go to the Church because, although the water has receded, the flood water is contaminated and advice from the Environment Agency is to steer clear from it.The Parade will turn around at the Baptist Church triangle and proceed back to the Weston Centre where the minutes silence and laying of the wreaths will take place.The Remembrance Service will take place at William Gilbert Church once the wreaths have been laid.The Village Warden will transport the wreaths to the memorial as soon as it is safe to do so.
