Nottinghamshire County Council - Proud of our past, ambitious for our future

County Hall remembers

08 November 2012
County Hall will fall silent tomorrow (Friday 9 November) at 11am as Nottinghamshire County Council employees and Councillors pay their respects to the country's war dead.

The event is being hosted by the Chairman of the County Council, Councillor Carol Pepper, who will also be joined by members of the Royal British Legion, Standard Bearers and members of the Notts Army Cadet Force.
Starting at 10.50am, there will be a short Service of Remembrance, followed by two minutes silence and the laying of wreaths at the front of County Hall by County Chairman of the Royal British Legion, Andy Gregory and Councillor Pepper.

A fire bell will sound at County Hall to signal the start of the silence at 11am and all telephone calls will cease for two minutes.

Councillor Pepper said, "It is really important that people take some time to contemplate the sacrifices made by our armed forces. I would urge other employers and members of the public to show their respects by taking part on Friday or Remembrance Sunday."
