The annual ceremony is one of many taking place across the country to acknowledge the contribution of both those currently serving in the Armed Forces and those who have served in the past.

The parade will begin at 9.50am, with some road closures and diversions in place from 9.30am.

Residents wishing to attend the ceremony are asked to arrive by 9.30am.

The Mayor of Barnet said: “We owe the men and women of our armed forces a tremendous debt of gratitude and Sunday’s ceremony gives us the chance to acknowledge their contribution.

“I would like to encourage as many residents as possible to come along and show their support.”
