Merton Council is calling on residents to line the streets of Morden for this year's Armed Forces Day Parade on Saturday 29 June.

Armed Forces Day will start at 9.45am with a dedication service at the war memorial outside the Civic Centre.

After the service, the parade will start its new route leaving Abbotsbury Road, turning left onto London Road, past the Civic Centre arriving at St Lawrence Church for 10.45am where a multi-faith service will be held.

The dedication service will be led by the Revd Canon Graham Derriman, Chaplain to the Royal British Legion, and will be followed by the raising of the Union Flag, led by Mayor of Merton, Councillor Krystal Miller and the Queen's Deputy Lieutenant for Merton, The Right Honourable Sir John Wheeler, JP.

They will be joined by local representatives from the Royal British Legion, Mitcham and Morden MP Siobhain McDonagh, Wimbledon MP Stephen Hammond, Council Leader, Councillor Stephen Alambritis and other local councillors representing wards across Merton.

Members of the Royal British Legion, Army Cadets from Wimbledon College, Air Training Corps, the Scouts, Police Cadets, Territorial Army, the City of London Fusiliers and other organisations will join in to offer respect to those who serve in the armed forces in the UK and overseas.
