Horse driven ambulance

At the head of the parade this year the community will pay homage to the NHS with the Swan Practice and the NHS at the front.

There will be a World War I horse driven ambulance provided by the Devils Horsemen, with members of the Swan Practice.

Parade chairman Cllr Howard Mordue said: “It was very difficult when we first started planning several months ago to anticipate whether to go ahead or not. The committee made the commitment that every effort should be made to bring the parade back to the town and Buckingham Town Council, with community, has supported us.

“We are so pleased people are voting with both feet and signing up to take part.”

The parade gets under way at 10.45am.
