Remembrance Day Celebrations and Service Changes

3 months ago Wed 8th Nov 2023

The Newport City annual parade and service on Remembrance Sunday will take place on Sunday 12th November in Newport city centre  along with similar commemorations at Caerleon and Caldicot.

On Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th November, Newport Bus will provide free travel to customers in military uniform or those who can present proof of current or previous service in any branch of our armed forces (including cadets). 

This year, member of staff Gareth Jones will lay a wreath at Newport Cenotaph on behalf of Newport Transport.

There will be a 2 minutes silence at 11am on both days, and our drivers will be stopping at a suitable and safe area to adhere and honour this.
