Wednesday 28th September 2016 - Wednesday 28th September 2016
Several hundred military personnel, accompanied by the Queens Division Band, Colour Party, Field Gun, armaments and local Cadets amongst others, will Parade through Lichfield City on Wednesday 28 September from 3.30pm in recognition of Defence Medical Services (DMS) Whittington being awarded the Freedom of the City of Lichfield, the highest honour that the City can bestow.
The Parade, which is open to the public and free to attend, will begin at Lichfield Cathedral and proceed along Bird Street and Market Street, past the Market Square where the salute will be taken, and then into Dam Street. DMS Whittington brings together the uniformed and civilian medical personnel from the Royal Navy, Army and Royal Air Force.
The role of DMS Whittington is central to the wellbeing of the Armed Forces of the United Kingdom, and it is in recognition of the importance of this work that the Freedom of the City is to be conferred at a special meeting of Lichfield City Council in the Guildhall. The Civic procession will then walk to Lichfield Cathedral and a service of thanks at the Cathedral will take place at 2:00pm.
Please note that road closures will be in force on Wednesday 28 September from 1pm-2pm along Lower Bore Street, Conduit Street, Dam Street and Cathedral Close, and from 3pm – 5pm along Cathedral Close, Beacon Street, Bird Street, Market Street, Conduit Street and Bore Street.
