The Royal British Legion has reversed its controversial decision to stop children marching at the Remembrance Day parade in Biggleswade.

Scouts, Guides and Brownies were told they wouldn't be able to join the march from the station to the memorial in Biggleswade this year over safety concerns - and that they would only be able to gather in the town's square instead.

Now though, the Royal British Legion says they can join the march.

“I am pleased to confirm that following a review of the logistics for The Royal British Legion Biggleswade Branch Remembrance Sunday parade, that they will be able to accommodate those younger members of the community who wish to take part.

Remembrance is inclusive to every age, background and culture, and the Branch Management of the Biggleswade Branch would like to invite everyone in the Biggleswade community to support their parade and join them in remembering the sacrifices of our Armed Forces on this year’s Remembrance Sunday and for the future.”
