Remembrance Sunday

Posted on:

The borough’s first citizen paid tribute to the fallen at this year's Remembrance Sunday service.

The Mayor of Dudley attended a small service at the cenotaph in Dudley’s town centre yesterday (8 Nov). 

A number of wreaths were laid on behalf of organisations who were unable to attend due to the current government restrictions.

The civic Remembrance Day service was broadcast on radio and online for people to follow from their homes. 

Residents were asked to step outside their front doors at 11am to mark the two minutes silence.

Councillor David Stanley, Mayor of Dudley, said:

This year’s Remembrance Sunday was very different to previous years as we were unable to host a parade and welcome so many organisations to attend. It is with great sadness that we have not been able to come together to remember.
However, it was still extremely important that we paid tribute to all those who serve, or have served in the armed forces, and pay our respects to all who have made such supreme sacrifices for their country. I would also like to thank everyone who has remembered at home.
