Easter Monday

Monday 13 Apr 2020

Under normal circumstances many Apprentice Boys Clubs, Band Members and friends would be eagerly preparing for the first major outing of the year on parade.

It is regrettable that our annual Easter Monday parade, one of the largest processions in our calendar, is cancelled this year. Like all responsible organisations we at General Committee completely accept the importance of abiding by the instructions of the Public Health Authority in the safety interests of our members and friends, and of all in our communities.

We look forward to the recovery phase, when together we can work in partnership to ensure our traditional Commemorations are bigger and better for everyone.

Despite the disappointment that there will be no parade on Easter Monday, we trust our members will have a lovely Easter holiday and reflect on, and celebrate, the true religious meaning of this Christian period.

Most of all we hope and pray that all members will continue to stay home, stay safe,and look forward to the days when we meet and march again.
