Bedworth in Warwickshire retains the tradition of celebrating Armistice Day at the exact hour, day and month each year. It is now the largest and most famous Armistice Day Parade in Britain. The service is held at the War Memorial in Bedworth's Coventry Road Cemetery in the presence of the Lord Lieutenant of Warwickshire representing H.M.The Queen, the Mayor of Nuneaton and Bedworth, invited dignitaries and guests, the citizens of Bedworth and the surrounding towns, and supporters from all over the country who travel just to "be there" on the day.
We will be providing transport to this historic event from 10.30am on Saturday 11th November 2017.

The government's advice on getting ready for winter aims to reduce cold-related illness and deaths. Key tips include:
Try to keep your home warm. Keep your main living room at around 18-21°C (65-70°F). If you can’t heat all the rooms you use, heat the living room during the day and the bedroom just before you go to sleep. You can also use a hot-water bottle or electric blanket (but not both at the same time) to keep warm while you're in bed.
Eat well. Food is a vital source of energy, which helps to keep your body warm. Try to make sure that you have hot meals and drinks regularly throughout the day and keep active in the home if you can.
Wrap up warm, inside and out. Layer your clothing to stay warm and wear shoes with a good grip if you need to go outside. If possible, stay inside during a cold period if you have heart or respiratory problems.
Check on older neighbours or relatives to make sure they're safe and well. Make sure they're warm enough, especially at night, and have stocks of food and medicines so they don't need to go out during very cold weather. If you're worried about a relative or an elderly neighbour, contact your local council or ring the Age UK helpline on 0800 00 99 66.
