Organisers are warning locals about road closures along the parade route.

The procession is due to leave Victoria Road car park at 12.30pm, heading along Massetts Road, Russell Crescent, Victoria Road, through the town centre to the A23, and into the Recreation Ground around 1.10pm.

A statement from the organisers said: “A ‘Rolling Road Closure Program’ will be in place on the day with all side roads and junctions on route subject to controlled closures for the obvious Health and Safety reasons.

“We hope to limit the inconvenience but seek everyone’s cooperation and patience, as the safety of the participants has to be our priority.”
