When: 13:00 - 15:30, Saturday 10 November
Organised by Cheltenham Borough Council, a WW1 memorial march will pass through the town centre next weekend.
Cheltenham lost more than 1,200 servicemen and servicewomen in the First World War. Participants are invited you to represent one of the names on the Cheltenham war memorial and to show that Cheltenham Remembers all those who gave so much and asked so little.
Beginning in Sandford Park, the route will take you through the Spa town, passing the war memorial on the promenade and finish in Montpellier Gardens where there will be a short service of remembrance.
This is a total distance of around 1 mile and will be undertaken at a gentle pace.
Each participant will carry the details (and photo where available) of one of the named casualties on the Cheltenham war memorial.
Please note that under 16's are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult. Dogs are not able to participate in this event unless they are assistance dogs.
