The Worshipful the Mayor of Dartford, Councillor Ian Armitt, is inviting Dartford’s residents to wear their poppy with pride and join him at this year’s Remembrance Day Parade and Service.

Poppies will be available from sellers around the Borough from Saturday 24 October with all proceeds going to the Royal British Legion.

Dartford’s Remembrance Day Service takes place on Sunday 8 November 2015, starting at 10.45am with a procession from Dartford Borough Museum to the War Memorial.

The service, which includes wreath laying and a two minute silence, then follows.

After the service, a march past and parade by members of local uniformed organisations completes the commemoration.
