THE MAYOR and Deputy Mayor of Cambridge will be representing the city at events to mark Remembrance Sunday this year.
On Sunday 13 November shortly before 11am, the Mayor, Cllr Mark Ashton, will be part of a procession from Station Road to the war memorial on Hills Road, where a wreath will be laid. Representatives of different organisations, including the armed forces and the Royal British Legion, will then take part in a commemorative service at the memorial.
At the same time, the Deputy Mayor, Cllr Jenny Gawthrope Wood, will join a procession to the county, city and University of Cambridge’s annual service of remembrance at Great St Mary’s Church.
Both services will be paused at 11am for two minutes’ silence which will be observed across the country.
Cllr Ashton said: “It will be a great honour to represent the city of Cambridge to mark Remembrance Sunday. I hope people in the city will be able to take a moment to remember the sacrifices made by so many of their fellow Cambridge residents and others in two world wars and in other conflicts since then.”
Residents can also listen to live coverage of the Remembrance event from 10.30am on Sunday on Cambridge 105 Radio via the radio station’s website cambridge105.co.uk
