Never forget

A week today at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month people will fall silent for two minutes to pay respect to the men and women who have paid the ultimate price fighting for our freedom.

The poppy is the symbol of remembrance and of the Poppy Appeal. Poppy Collectors appear in late October so everyone can make a donation and wear their poppy for remembrance.

The two minute silence at 11am is just one of many events taking place next Sunday to remember lives lost since the First World War. For more information about Remembrance Day and the other events taking place visit The Royal British Legion website HERE.
