For the return parade Church Street will be closed from the Fitzalan Road roundabout to East Street between 11:50 and 12:30 with a short closure at the East Street crossing to allow the parade to pass into the High Street. 

Speaking about the event, Chair of the Community Resources Committee, Councillor Sean Lee, said: “It is an important occasion where our veterans, uniformed groups, and members of the public can come together for Littlehampton’s Remembrance Day Parade and service. We will remember, honour and pay tribute to those who have suffered or died due to war. I also hope that those serving or suffering in current conflicts around the world can benefit from peaceful resolution as soon as possible."
