Dartford Council has announced its Remembrance Sunday plans which will take place in Central Park.

The annual service will begin at 10.45am at Central Park's War Memorial on November 12.

This year's proceedings will include a veterans' march, uniformed and youth organisations, parading from the High Street past the memorial along Market Street.

A spokesperson for Dartford Council said: “The public are welcome to attend and participate in remembering those who have sacrificed so much and who continue to do so in conflicts around the world.”

Due to road closures from 10.15am on said day along High Street and Market Street, anyone looking to spectate should make alternate travel arrangements.

Parking restrictions will apply at 7pm from the night of November 11, and roads will reopen after the event, estimated around midday on November 12.

Remembrance Sunday is observed on the second Sunday of November. The day is dedicated to commemorating the British service members who have lost their lives in wars and various military conflicts since the commencement of World War I.

Remembrance Sunday provides a nationwide occasion to honour the commitment and sacrifices made by all those who have safeguarded our freedoms.

The remembrance encompasses the Armed Forces and their families, both from Britain and the Commonwealth.
