09 November, 2018

TO mark Remembrance day, Islington will host its annual parade on Sunday (November 11), to ­honour those who lost their lives in war.

The parade takes place on the centenary of the end of the First World War, which claimed the lives of almost a ­million British and ­Commonwealth military personnel.

The event will feature service units, ­veterans and local organisations who will gather outside Union Chapel in Compton Terrace at 10am, before marching down Upper Street.

The Mayor, Councillor Dave Poyser, will also be taking part.

The parade will end at Islington Memorial Green where a two-minute silence will take place at 11am.

Elsewhere in the borough, Dartmouth Park will host a beacon-lighting ceremony at 7pm and churches across the borough will be ringing out their bells at 7.05pm – alongside thousands of cathedrals and churches across the nation – to commemorate the end of the First World War.
