Blairgowrie Advertiser - - NEWS -

The Blair­gowrie branch of Le­gion Scot­land is or­gan­is­ing the pa­rade and Ser­vice of Re­mem­brance at the Wellmeadow on Sun­day, Novem­ber 12.

It is hoped there will be a good turnout of peo­ple pay­ing their re­spects at the com­mem­o­ra­tions.

The pa­rade forms in Up­per Brown Street and marches off at 12.20pm down the High Street and Al­lan Street to the Wellmeadow, which it en­ters at the gate on Gas Brae.

The ser­vice and lay­ing of wreaths starts at 12.30pm and, around 1pm, the pa­rade will re­turn to Brown Street by the re­verse route.

On Satur­day, Novem­ber 11, there will also be a short cer­e­mony at the war memo­rial and the twominute si­lence will be ob­served at 11am.

Or­gan­is­ers hope that busi­nesses and in­di­vid­u­als, wher­ever they are, will stop for two min­utes at this time.

In the pe­riod lead­ing up to Re­mem­brance Sun­day the Le­gion will be putting col­lec­tion cans and pop­pies in many lo­cal busi­ness premises.

Every­thing that is col­lected is for­warded to Pop­pyS­cot­land in Ed­in­burgh and added to the na­tional to­tal.
