Remembrance Sunday – 12 November 2023

The Town Council has been working in partnership with the Royal British Legion and local groups to coordinate this year’s act of remembrance in Edenbridge on Sunday 12 November.

At 10.30 am there will be a march from Leathermarket car park to the War Memorial Hospital (with road closure), followed by a wreath-laying service at 11.00 am.

The whole community is invited to join, but please be advised that there will be limited parking available at the War Memorial Hospital. Instead, you should park in the town. Those who need to travel by car should arrive at the memorial by 10.30am to avoid the road closure.

Help with Transportation

A Scouts minibus will lead the parade, with limited seats available for those with walking mobility issues. These should be booked in advance via this booking form. Alternatively, please email or telephone 07746 816092.
