Tameside Remembrance 2021

Press Release: 14/10/2021

 

Lest we forgetFROM November 11 to 14, the communities making up Tameside will be holding services and ceremonies to mark Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday.

Cllr Janet Cooper, the Civic Mayor, said: “More than a century since the First World War ended, and 76 years since 1945, remembrance events remain as important as ever.

“I know residents will wish to pay their respects to our brave servicemen and women past and present, and I welcome that fact.

“However, I would ask them to be mindful that covid is still with us and churches may well be enforcing social distancing. I would advise everyone to take a mask.”
