Town mayor, cllr Christine Mitchell will lay a wreath on behalf of the town council, and Steve Ashman, vice-president of the Westbury branch of the Royal British Legion, will lay a wreath on behalf of the legion. Other wreaths will be laid by local organisations.
The parade will be led by Trowbridge Youth Band, who will be joined by local groups such as the air cadets, army cadets, St John Ambulance, and Scout and Guiding groups.
Eddie Bridges, president of the Westbury branch of the Royal British Legion said, “We normally get about 30 wreaths laid by local organisations, and last year I would say all in all we had between 200 and 300 people, which is quite good.”
