Parade and Drumhead Service
The chosen Charity for this years Drumhead service is The Not Forgotten Association
The Drumhead Service 2019 will take place at the Bandstand in Trowbridge Park as usual on Sunday 30th June with a slightly later start time of 1500hrs due to the longer Parade.
The Committee extend a very warm welcome to all to join us at this Service. Some seating will be available but please feel free to bring your own chairs. Plenty of standing room
The term Drumhead Service refers to a religious service attended by members of a military unit while in the field.
The ceremonial drums will be on loan from Trowbridge Sea Cadets, to whom we say a very big thank you.
