Remembrance Sunday services
- Council and democracy
This weekend Barnet will pause to pay tribute to those who have lost their lives in conflict during remembrance services across the borough.
On Sunday 13 November, the Worshipful the Mayor of Barnet, Councillor David Longstaff, will attend commemorations due to be held at the High Barnet War Memorial.
The parade will make its way along the High Street to the war memorial before the services begins at 10.40am. Two minutes of silence will be observed at 11am.
Also in attendance will be councillors, ex-servicemen and women, Army Reserve personnel and cadets.
The Mayor will lay a wreath at the foot of the memorial on behalf of the borough.
The Mayor said: “It is important that we never forget the sacrifice made by so many in the service of our country.
“Remembrance Sunday is the time to pause and reflect on the profound debt we owe those who have given their lives in the two world wars and recent conflicts; and to think of their families.
“This year commemorations have added poignancy, 100 years since the Battle of the Somme, where 419 people from the Barnet area lost their lives.”
