Remembrance Sunday – 13 November 2022, 10.40am to 11.40am
Rotherham will come together to remember its fallen servicemen and women from past and recent conflicts on 13th November for Remembrance Sunday. This year’s event will echo the format of the 2021 parade and service, held entirely outdoors and contained within Clifton Park.
The parade will depart from outside Garden House, Clifton Park at 10.40am and make its way through the park towards the Fun Park, past the Bandstand and down to the Cenotaph War Memorial, with uniformed groups, veterans and key organisations taking part. The parade will arrive at its destination at 10.50am, with observers advised to use a quicker route down to the Cenotaph War Memorial.
From 10.55am, a service will take place led by the Reverend Canon Phil Batchford from Rotherham Minster, with the Act of Remembrance, national two-minute silence and wreath laying at the Cenotaph War Memorial. Mayor Councillor Tajamal Khan will lay a wreath on behalf of the borough.
On conclusion of the service, from 11.25am the parade will make its way back up to Garden House where the Mayor and Deputy-Lieutenant will take the salute.
As well as the formal event, Clifton Park Museum will also be home to a special display focused on the 100-year anniversary of the unveiling of the Cenotaph War Memorial at Clifton Park. Visitors are advised to enjoy from 11.30am.
It is advisable to utilise the main car park, with access via Doncaster Road (S65 2BH). Parking at Clifton Park Museum will be limited.
