Northwich will fall silent twice over Remembrance Weekend to pay tribute to those who have given their lives in conflict for the country.

The Town Council have organised two special services to commemorate the annual event.

The first, on Friday 11 November, will begin around 10:50am from the Northwich Cenotaph. It will start with a prayer from the presiding Minister and be followed by the traditional bugle call and customary two-minute silence.

The second event takes place on Remembrance Sunday, 13 November, and will involve a parade assembling at Crum Hill, adjacent to the police station, at 9.15am. Those in attendance will march along Chesterway, into Church Road and on to St Helen’s Church for the Service of Remembrance (10am).

Once the service has finished, guests will make their way to the Cenotaph for the Act of Remembrance where dignitaries, regiments and various organisations will lay their wreaths. A two-minute silence will be held at 11am.

Town Mayor, Kevin Rimmer, has given his thoughts on the forthcoming Remembrance Weekend ceremonies, which are open to all members of the public.

He said: “Once again we have the chance to remember our fallen heroes and have the opportunity to pay our respects. I hope as many people as possible will join us to remember them.”
