  Welcome to the Parish Council website


Chelmsford City Council's centenary plans for the Chelmsford City Remembrance Sunday Parade and Service are underway - and local community and service organisations are sought to take part.

Each year the Mayor of Chelmsford leads a Remembrance Parade from the War Memorial in Duke Street, Chelmsford on Sunday 11 November at 10.50am.  The Mayor joins veterans and members of the public in paying respect to all those who continue to serve in the Armed Forces, as well as those who gave their lives during previous wars,

This year, Armistice Day marks 100 years since the end of the First World War.  To commemorate the centenary, this years parade is being significantly extended and the Mayor is welcoming applications from community groups, community or service organisations who wish to participate.

The Mayor of Chelmsford, Councillor Yvonne Spence, says "On 11 November 1918 the people of Chelmsford, an estimated 272 soldiers from the Chelmsford area never returned from the war, and many of those who did were affected for the rest of their lives by their experiences - as were their families, friends and entire communities".  

"On the centenary of the Armistice, it is fitting to bring our entire community together to mark this momenous occasion and to honour the sacrifice made by all those who gaave their todays for our tomorrows".

Any organisation wishing to take part is invited to apply by email to by Wednesday 15 August 2018.
