Kerridge Remembrance Parade
The members of Kerridge War Memorial Committee would like to invite you to join us in our annual parade through Kerridge to the War Memorial in Oak Lane where we hold our service of remembrance. We remember the brave men of Kerridge who lost their lives in both World Wars as well as those who fought, participated and were affected by them.
We meet in Jackson Lane near the entrance to Hollin House Hotel at 2.15pm to assemble behind Bollington Brass Band, to parade through the village.
We arrive at the War Memorial in time to start at 3pm. We then hold a short service of hymns, prayers and readings. Everyone then parades back to the front of Hollin House Hotel to dismiss. Refreshments will then be available, and we hope you will be able to stay and join us.
There will be road closures on Jackson Lane and Oak Lane for the duration of the event and although the marshalls will try to keep the disruption to a minimum please expect delays and avoid the area in your car if possible. Advanced signage will be in place for several days before to warn drivers.
The Kerridge War memorial is a private memorial bought by the people of Kerridge in 1918 to the Memory of their loved ones and later those lost in 1939 to 1945. It was cut from local stone, crafted by local stonemasons and presented as a gift, so that the men from Kerridge would always be remembered.
They gave their today for our tomorrow.
