Call for explanation over Nelson remembrance parade
9:10am Thursday 6th December 2012 in News
A NELSON resident has asked local councillors about why the town’s parade during the Remembrance Sunday service did not go through the newly refurbished town centre.
The resident told councillors at a meeting on Monday that she had been speaking to a veteran who said the parade should go through the centre.
She also said that the service should include elements from different faiths and religions to make it more inclusive from Nelson.
Coun Mohammed Iqbal said: “The British Legion organises the Remembrance Sunday events, the council and the police just help to facilitate it, but we will pass these comments on.”
