Newbiggin Remembrance Day – Sunday 13th November 2022

This year Newbiggin by the Sea Town Council have taken the lead in arranging Remembrance Day Commemorations on Sunday 13th November.

We have  been working closely with the local churches and the new Newbiggin Veterans Association to plan a fitting commemorative event.

A church service led by Father Anthony O’Grady will begin at 9:30 at St. Bartholomew’s Church.

A short wreath laying service will be held at Newbiggin Colliery Memorial at 10:20.

The public are invited to gather safely at Whitehouse Corner from 10.30 then parade to Newbiggin Memorial Park.

The Parade, starting at Whitehouse Corner, will be led by the Coastguard, and will include Newbiggins’ Veteran’s, organisations, and local community groups. A road closure has been granted for Front Street for the duration of the parade and service.  The parade will start at 10.40

At the Memorial Park, all wreath layers are asked to report to Parade Marshal, Sheila Davies, on arrival.  The Parade Marshal will call all to order at 10.57, then the Act of Remembrance will take place.

The first wreath will be laid by the Vice Lord Lieutenant, Caroline Pryer, on behalf of his Majesty King Charles III, the second wreath by the Mayor of Newbiggin, Louise Spratt, on behalf of the people of Newbiggin then other local dignitaries, organisations and groups.  If you are not called forward to lay a wreath there will be an opportunity to do so after the service.

Jayess Newbiggin Brass Band will be present to play during the service.

Newbiggin Memorial Park will remain open for the public to pay their respects.

After the service has taken place we would be grateful for any feedback from the community via
