Advanced warning of Remembrance Sunday in Tiptree 12.11.2023 (14:00 – 15:00) Road closure granted.

Remembrance Sunday Marshals: Could anybody help out, or know somebody who could? I need marshals at the junction of New Road and Church Road and the War Memorial junction at Station Road and Factory Hill. The parade will be between 14:00 and 15:00, the closure will need to be ready to deploy 10 mins before.

It involves moving a road closed sign and a barrier from behind the fire station / car park behind the memorial to the junction and returning them afterwards. You’ll need a hi-vis jacket, I have a few. Once the road closure is in place, it is just a case of assisting motorists to get to their destination; deal with emergency access and making sure the crowd at the memorial stays safe. Full details of the closure are provided.

Thank you.

The parade will start from The Centre at approximately 14:00. The ceremony at the War Memorial will run from 14:10 to 14:45 approximately, and then the parade will walk back along Church Road for a service at St. Luke’s at 15:00.

It is advised that all traffic avoid the junction at Church Road / Factory Hill / Station Road / Chapel Road where the War Memorial stands around the time of the ceremony. A road closure is being applied for with access only to Chapel Road from the New Road end; Church Road between The Centre and the War Memorial; and Station Road between Anchor Road and the War Memorial for the duration of the ceremony. Traffic between Factory Hill and Station Road will be allowed through on a turn and turn-about basis only when it is safe to do so and may be stopped for short periods, particularly for the silence. The junction may be closed totally if there is a large turnout for the event. Vehicles are requested to proceed slowly, quietly and carefully near the war memorial junction.

The following roads can be used to avoid the junction within Tiptree: New Road; Anchor Road; Rectory Road. Points south of the junction can be accessed via Maldon Road (Tiptree Heath) following a route through Loamy Hill Road and Witham Road to Tolleshunt D’Arcy or Grove Farm Road and Tudwick Road to Tolleshunt Knights and vice versa.
