World War One parade planned

A commemoration event will be held in Workington next Saturday to mark the centenary of the start of World War One.

A parade, church service and reception will be held, involving around 500 people.

Organisations taking part will include the Duke of Lancaster’s Regimental Band, the Royal British Legion, military cadets, schools, community organisations, town and parish councils and civic dignitaries.

The parade will gather at Central Station car park at 10.45am and set off at 11am.

It will march along Oxford Street and Vulcan’s Lane to Vulcan Park, where a short service, followed by the Last Post, will be held at the war memorial at about 11.15am.

Around 11.30am the parade will march along Park Lane, Oxford Street and Station Road to St Michael’s Church on Falcon Place where the service begins at noon.

Bill Bacon, Allerdale mayor, said: “I had the idea for this event last year and, after several months planning, I am really pleased to see so many groups from across the borough, including a number of schools, wanting to be involved.

“It’s an exciting culmination to my year of office. I am proud of the people of Allerdale.”
