On Sunday 8 November, the Mayor alongside the Revd. Cannon Kelvin Inglis led the City’s Act of Remembrance supported by the Royal British Legion, a small civic party, representatives of the Armed Forces and fellow Councillors.
Due to the government’s guidelines, the event was comprised of a smaller service than usual, with social distancing and track and trace implemented. Following a 2 minute silence at 11am, City wreaths were laid at Salisbury War Memorial with the Mayor laying his wreath on behalf of all residents of the City.
Although smaller this year, the service showed the City of Salisbury remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country as part of Remembrance Sunday.
On Wednesday 11 November, Armistice Day, the Mayor will pay his respects at the War Memorial at 11am on behalf of city residents. There will be no formal event on this date.
