1400 Greenways will be closed along with its junctions at Beech Ride & Little Copse.

At 1400 hours the procession will commence. The procession will be led by the Dolphin Marching Band followed by the Emergency Service Vehicles and a Princess Floats. This block of vehicles will be followed by the remaining entries who will follow at a safe distance.
