The 2018 Douglas Borough Council Remembrance Sunday service will be held on Sunday November 11.
Due to the regeneration works in Duke Street, those wishing to form and parade are asked to meet in Regent Street between 9 and 9.10am. The parade will then move off through Strand Street, Castle Street, Marina Road, St Thomas’ Walk, Market Street 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 Canon Philip Frear with the Archdeacon of the Isle of Man, the Ven Andrew Brown, offering prayers.
The service will end at 10.40am to allow time for those present to parade to the War Memorial to observe the two minutes’ silence at 11am, which will be followed by the laying of wreaths.
The final parade will then form on the Promenade roadway alongside the War Memorial and, after the salute is taken opposite the Gaiety Theatre by His Worship the Mayor, Councillor Jonathan Joughin JP, where he will be joined by His Excellency the Lieutenant Governor Sir Richard Gozney KCMG CVO the parade will proceed into Marina Road and retrace the route to Market Hill.
In the event of adverse weather any or all of the parades may be abandoned. The observance of the two minutes’ silence at the War Memorial will, however, proceed.
