A symbolic procession is to be held at Jarrow Town Hall (front of the building) at 2:30pm prompt on Sunday, 9th October 2011, where people are asked to assemble at the Town Hall on Sunday and walk across to the Christ church, Jarrow alongside our comrades, community and voluntary groups. Trade Unions are encouraged to take their branch banners and flags.
The commemorative church service will begin at 3pm to mark and celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the Jarrow March. There will also be an unveiling of a commemorative plaque in the Church as a memento of the original march which set off from the Church to London on the 5thOctober 1936, which will be unveiled by the Mayor of South Tyneside, Councillor Jim Sewell at the Service.
