Coleshill Remembrance Parade and Service, Sunday 12th November 2023: An appeal for Chapter 8 LANTRA-trained helpers!
Coleshill’s Remembrance Sunday Parade and Service is always a hugely popular and moving event in Coleshill that attracts many residents keen to pay their respects. The event is organised by The Royal British Legion, Coleshill Parish Church and Coleshill Town Council; ably assisted by volunteers from the local community. The Parade leaves from Coleshill C of E Primary School, Wingfield Road, and processes through the Town to the Parish Church.
This year, due to circumstances beyond our control, we only have enough people who hold a valid Chapter 8 training or a LANTRA: Traffic Management for Community Events license to implement the road closure for half of the Parade. Regrettably, in order for a Parade to still be held, the difficult decision has been made to shorten the parade route.
At the moment this is planned to be achieved by stepping off from Chantry House (opposite Coleshill Town Hall) and marching to the Parish Church.
This is our appeal: if you or anyone you know has received Chapter 8 training OR LANTRA: Traffic Management for Community Events AND have a valid license and are willing to join us to help during the Remembrance Parade. We would appreciate all your help and this would mean that we can return to planning the longer route. Please contact Zoe Hillcox-Davis on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01675 463 326.
