Town Mayor to lead Civic Parade and Service this Sunday

Knutsfordians are being encouraged to come out to see their new Mayor Cllr Andrew Malloy during his Civic Sunday parade this week. The parade that starts assembles at 1.15pm and sets off at 1.20pm on Sunday 23rd June.  It will start from King Street car park before working its way along King St, Minshull St, Princess St, Church Hill, back across King Street Car park and across the Moor to St Cross Church where the Civic Service will take place led by Revd Paul Deakin.

The Parade will be led by the 2056 (Knutsford) Squadron ATC marching band and include dignitaries and Mayors from Town and Parish Councils across Cheshire as well as other uniformed groups.

Town Mayor Cllr Andrew Malloy said: “The Civic Sunday parade and service is something of a welcome to the new Mayor, and an opportunity for you all to meet your new Mayor.  I would be delighted if as many of you that attended Mayor Making, could also attend the service and parade, and show me your support as you have done many times before.

It would be nice to meet many of you face to face, a change from many of our regular chats on social media.

If you are not able to attend the service, perhaps you could support the parade, by helping line the streets and give us all a cheer as we walk past, that would be truly lovely.

As my year will be about supporting youth and activity/sport, it would be great to see many youngsters, and local sporting clubs out too.

I look forward to seeing you on 23rd June.”
