Cheshire West and Chester Council has confirmed that the annual Remembrance Sunday event will take place across two days on Saturday 11 November and Sunday 12 November.

The events are organised by Winsford Town Council and the Royal British Legion, and will take place on:

  • Saturday 11 November with a service from 10.45am at the town centre war memorials.
  • Sunday 12 November with a parade starting a 10.15am from Wyvern House, via The Drumber. The service will begin at 10.45am at the town centre war memorials.

Due to the ongoing construction works and limited space, organisations are being contacted directly by the organisers to ask them to attend on either the Saturday or the Sunday.

Work is currently taking place on the Council-led £22 million regeneration of Winsford town centre. It is the biggest investment in the town centre shopping area since the 1960s, made possible by the Council's acquisition of the site in 2018. The redevelopment involves the demolition of some existing buildings and the construction of new and improved spaces for businesses, with a new 168-space car park alongside improvement to walking, cycling access and dedicated cycle storage. New open public spaces are being created for exciting pop-ups, events and visiting attractions, with more green space in the town centre than ever before, creating a relaxing and pleasant environment to enjoy.

The project also includes the refurbishment and relocation of the town centre war memorials to a new town centre civic square in the first half of 2024. The memorials will benefit from improved and increased space around them, and will be installed at surface level to provide better access for all.

The public is being advised that there may be disruption to pedestrian access and routes around the town centre while work is taking place. Signage is being installed to advise of alternative routes. The Council appreciates the patience of visitors to the town centre during this time.

All businesses in the town centre, along with Winsford Library and Vale House Resource Centre, remain open as usual for people to visit.

Cllr Nathan Pardoe, Cabinet Member for Inclusive Economy, Regeneration and Digital Transformation, said:

Starting quotation marks
Remembrance Sunday is important to the people of Winsford, it is our chance to remember those who served and their families. Cheshire West and Chester Council has maintained safe access to the memorials during construction works, this cost more money but was the right thing to do for Winsford. I'd like to thank Winsford Town Council and the Royal British Legion for organising the Remembrance Sunday events despite the added challenge of the construction works.

The refurbishment and relocation of the war memorials to a new town centre civic square in the new year will provide a better environment for people to take part in future remembrance events and pay their respects. It'll be a space Winsford can be proud of, and on Remembrance Sunday and throughout the year, we will remember those who served.
