A PARADE and service will remember fallen heroes this Remembrance Sunday.

The remembrance parade will begin from Clacton Town Hall at 10.25am with dignitaries taking a salute before the procession goes through the Town Square.

It will then make its way down to the seafront war memorial.

Just before 11am visitors will also be able to enjoy a service led by Rev David Lower and accompanied with hymns by the Salvation Army Band.

A two-minute silence will also be held to remember the fallen.

Services will take place at the Clacton War Memorial and other locations across the district shortly before 11 am on Thursday.

Tendring Council chairman Jeff Bray said: “Residents of Tendring turn out in numbers to observe the parade and join the Remembrance Service, and I hope that this year is no exception.”

Dan Casey, president of the Clacton Royal British Legion branch, added: “By coming together and observing this act of remembrance we draw upon our history, in the hope of not repeating the conflict experienced then in our future.”

He added: “It is also a time to reflect and remember those lives and loved ones we have lost during the pandemic.”
