Appeal to ensure Mossley’s Remembrance parade takes place

AN APPEAL has been made to help make sure Mossley’s Remembrance Sunday parade can go ahead.

Normally, people walk from the service at the war memorial, close to the former town hall above Stamford Road, to George Lawton Hall.

But this year, stewards have been thin on the ground, with talk it may be cancelled.

It is likely to still take place on Sunday, November 12, however Mossley Town Council’s clerk Mike Iveson is on the lookout for extra volunteers.

Chairman of the authority, Frank Travis, said: “The parade has not been cancelled but it has been difficult to secure a sufficient number of volunteer stewards.

“Mike is currently dealing with offers of assistance and at present we are still expecting it to proceed.

“However, we would certainly welcome further offers to ensure that we do secure enough people on the day.

“We want to encourage volunteering in general anyway as stewards are a vital part of putting on events in the town.

“The role is not onerous and there will be a briefing before the event on Sunday for all stewards.

“For those who may not have done this before we look to have anyone inexperienced partnered with one or more who are confident about their role.”
