There will be two Remembrance Day Parades in Hammersmith and Fulham on Sunday, November 14.

The Mayor, Cllr Adronie Alford will attend the Fulham parade via New Kings Road to an open air service at the Fulham War Memorial, in Vicarage Garden.

The Deputy Mayor, Cllr Frances Stainton will join the march from Sulgrave Road to an open air service at the war memorial at Shepherds Bush Green.

The parades give war veterans, ex-servicemen, residents and community groups the opportunity to remember the sacrifices of those who gave their lives in two world wars and other conflicts around the world.

Cllr Alford said: " The parades and services on Remembrance Sunday, the two minute silence and the Poppy Appeal are important ways to honour the immense contributions of those who gave their lives in two world wars and other conflicts around the world.

" They also play a vital role in highlighting the continuing needs of ex-servicemen and women, as well as their relatives, who require our help and care and also for our brave troops currently serving in Afghanistan,Iraq and other territories around the world."
