The regiment – more commonly known as The Welsh Cavalry – will receive the honour at a special ceremony on Wednesday 10th December.
The town council agreed the honour “in recognition of the long association and cordial relations which have existed between the town and the Regiment and the work of the British Army in helping to defend the interests of the United Kingdom.”
The event will include a church service at St Chad’s at 1pm and a parade through town at 2pm. The parade will end at the Guildhall where Mayor Councillor Beverley Baker will receive the parade troops.
The ceremony will also mean the closure of a series of roads through the town centre.
From 1.45pm to 3pm Frankwell Quay, Welsh Bridge, Mardol Quay, Smithfield Road, Castle Gates, Castle Street, St. Mary’s Street, Dogpole, High Street, Wyle Cop, (N.W. direction) Mardol Head, Shoplatch Bellstone, Barker Street, Lower Claremont Bank, Claremont Bank, St. Chads Terrace and Murivance, will all be subject to closures.
