A service to mark Armistice and to pay tribute to all those who lost their lives in conflict is being held at County Hall on Monday, 11 November.
The short service will take place at the Stand Easy memorial at County Hall, beginning at 10.55am and will incorporate the laying of wreaths and a two-minute silence at 11am.
Dignitaries taking part in the service include the Lord-Lieutenant of Leicestershire Mike Kapur OBE, High Sheriff of Leicestershire Tim Hercock Esq and Chairman of Leicestershire County Council Pam Posnett MBE.
They will be joined by representatives of veterans’ associations, the Royal British Legion, serving members of the armed forces, cadets and pupils from Hall Primary School in Glenfield.
The service of remembrance is among a number of ways in which we will pay tribute, these include:
• Displaying poppies on the lamp posts along Championship Way
• Placing two Royal British Legion ‘Tommies’ silhouettes to stand guard at the entrance to the County Hall car park
• Lighting up County Hall in red
