Each year, on the last Sunday in October, Polish Airmen who gave their lives in the 2nd World War are remembered at the All Souls ceremony in Newark. The service of remembrance is organised by the Polish Air Force Association. It takes place in the Commonwealth War Graves Section of Newark Cemetery. It normally begins at 3pm when wreaths are laid, and tea lights are lit on each of the graves. This is attended by Polish people from all over the country.
Further information is usually posted on the Newark Town Council website. http://newark.gov.uk/Default.aspx
On Sunday 12th November the Annual Remembrance Day Service & Parade will take place in Newark. There will be a parade from London Road car park then a wreath laying ceremony at the War Memorial commencing at 10.55am.
The parade will include members of the Newark Branch of the Royal British Legion and representatives from the ex-Service Associations, Sea, Army and Air Cadets.
Following the Church Service there will be a march past in the Market Place when the salute will be taken.
Fund raising at Waitrose
Waitrose have very kindly supported Newark & District Air Cadets for a number of years by allowing Cadets to pack customer shopping and, hopefully, receive a donation in return.
This is our major fund raising event of the year with the money we collect paying to keep our mini bus on the road by covering insurance, road tax, MOT and service costs.
All 1260 Cadets are expected to take part in this activity and a rota system will be in place to ensure that there are Cadets available throughout the day. A sheet for Cadets to complete confirming the times that they will be at Waitrose will be available at Squadron.
