Remembrance Days in Stockport 2019

Commemorative services and events in the borough on Remembrance Sunday (Sunday 10 November) and Armistice Day (Monday 11 November).

Stockport Council, together with local branches of the Royal British Legion, has helped to organise some of the commemorative services and events in the borough on Remembrance Sunday (Sunday 10 November) and Armistice Day (Monday 11 November).

On Remembrance Sunday, The Mayor of Stockport, Councillor Laura Booth, will lead the borough in paying respects at the Civic Act of Remembrance on the steps of Stockport War Memorial Art Gallery, Wellington Road South, Stockport. At precisely 11.00am there will be a two-minute silence, ending with the Last Post. Following prayers, hymns and reflections, wreaths will be laid on the steps of the War Memorial.

The Council will join the Royal British Legion in observing a two-minute silence on Armistice Day, Monday 11 November. At precisely 11.00am, the Mayor of Stockport, Councillor Laura Booth, will observe the silence on the steps of Stockport War Memorial Art Gallery. To mark the beginning and end of the silence (at 11.00am and 11.02am) maroon rockets will be launched from the civic complex. The sound should be heard for up to two miles away, and residents and shoppers should not be alarmed.

The Mayor is asking local residents to support the Royal British Legion’s annual Poppy Appeal which provides the main source of funds to maintain the Royal British Legion’s many welfare and benevolent schemes.

Councillor Laura Booth, Mayor of Stockport, said: “This is an important time to honour serviceman and women, of all faiths and non faith, of this country and the Commonwealth who paid the ultimate price. I’d encourage Stockport residents to join us in remembering them, at one of the services across the borough.”
