Cllr Paul Osborn, Leader of Harrow Council, shared his pride in the community’s efforts to honour Remembrance Sunday at the upcoming parade on November 12th.
In a message posted on the weekly MyHarrow newsletter, Cllr Osborn acknowledged the council’s initiative to display large poppies across the borough’s high streets for the first time.
“It’s our way of paying tribute to and honouring men and women (past and present) who protect our freedom and keep us safe,” said Cllr Osborn.
He invited residents to join him at the war memorial on November 12th, saying, “I look forward to seeing many of you a week on Sunday (12 Nov) at the war memorial.”
Remembrance Sunday is an occasion that honours the bravery and sacrifice of individuals who fought for our freedom.
It serves as a reminder of their dedication and bravery, encouraging communities to come together in gratitude and reflection.
The Remembrance Sunday Parade held in Harrow is one of the largest in London and promises to be heartfelt event bringing the community together from across the borough to pay their respects.
It will also be the last event held at the former Harrow Civic Centre site as the war memorial is carefully moved to Harrow Town Centre in the coming months.
For those wishing to attend, the Remembrance Sunday Parade will take place on Sunday 12 November. The parade starts from Katie’s statue in St Ann’s Road at 10am before making its way to the Civic Centre.
