Dorset – Weymouth and Portland Veterans Parade
Jun 24 all-day

As you are all aware the Borough again will welcome veterans, residents and visitors to a weekend (23 – 25 Jun 18) of military and veterans commemorations and celebrations. The Armed Forces and our Veterans have made and continue to make a major contribution to our Nation and the Weymouth event will honour, celebrate and provide a focus on the tireless work carried out by all Veterans Associations, individuals and today’s Military Force.

Sat 23 Jun 18 will see the Military Vehicles arrive, awareness stands on the Esplanade and live music from the 1940’s.

The annual Service and Parade on Weymouth Seafront will take place Sun 24th June and the Armed Forces Flag Raising on Mon 25th June 18.

Details are below for those that wish to participate in the veterans parade.

Meet up point:
Lodmoor Carpark (At the rear marked off like previous years)
Weymouth
DT4 7SX

Meet up time:
1000hrs – 1030hrs

At 1100hrs we intend to hold a small service (Awaiting confirmation of a Biker Bishop).

There will be no move before 1130hrs. Once the procession moves off we will follow in a orderly fashion at the rear and then halt at the memorial. Hopefully if we manage to source a Bishop he will say a few words and we will then lay a RBLR Wreath. We will then safely catch back up to the procession and carry on being welcomed by the general public that will be lining the sea front. We are hoping to park up at the ferry port just like last year (Awaiting confirmation from the council).

There will be trade stalls and our Community Fundraiser with have a British Legion stall on display with also live music from the Decadettes https://www.facebook.com/thedecadettes.

If the weather is like last year can i suggest that you bring plenty of fluids as it was a scorcher.
