Those going directly to the church are asked to be seated by 1110.  All members are welcome to march in the parade. We thank the Dorset Marshals without whose help the parade could not be held.   We are also grateful to the Town Band, which turns out every year, whatever the weather, to support us in the supreme act of remembrance, and to the Town Council staff who make the official arrangements for the civic parade.  We will arrange to erect the knitted poppy cascade from last year to adorn St Peter’s Church.  There will be a separate brief ceremony outside the Town Hall at 11 a.m on Thursday 11 November 2021 to commemorate the exact time the cessation of hostilities occurred in 1918.  Branch members and the public are all welcome, and are invited to be there by 10.50 a.m.
