Kineton Freedom Parade July 22nd

0001On Saturday 22nd July between 10.25 and 11am, the men and women of Defence Munition (DM) Kineton will be marching through Warwick to mark the MOD station’s 75th anniversary. 

The Kineton base is a specialist centre for bomb disposal work and over the years has trained thousands of service personnel from around the world in this vital work. 

Five years ago, the Kineton station was awarded the Freedom of Warwick, so to mark their anniversary, they will exercise their right to march through the county town, giving Warwickshire people the chance to show their support and appreciation.

The parade will include up to 80 troops with bayonets fixed, colours flying, drums beating and bands playing. They will start at the castle, then march down Castle Street, High Street, Swan Street, Market Place, Old Square and Church Street where they’ll take the salute. There will be road closures from 6am. 

There are likely to be large crowds showing their support, so Unlocking Warwick volunteers will be among the marshals along the route, and there will be a designated area outside Lloyds Bank in Swan Street for disabled people to get a clear view.
