Remembrance Service

 

Remembrance Service in the Mayor’s Parlour

 

In remembrance of the men of the Bedfordshire Yeomanry who died during the First World War, the Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson, will lay a memorial wreath in the Mayor’s Parlour, at 10.30am, on Armistice Day (Friday 11th November).

 

Bedford’s Mayor’s Parlour is unique in being the only one in the country to have its own war memorial.

 

Mayor of Bedford Borough Dave Hodgson said: ‘Tributes will be paid at the unique memorial in the Mayor’s Parlour and a two minute silence will be observed in Bedford Town Centre in remembrance of those throughout history who bravely sacrificed their lives for all of us, this Armistice Day.’

 

Veterans from past conflicts have been invited to attend. Members of the County and local Royal British Legion (RBL) have also been invited.

 

The Mayor will lay a wreath and then those assembled will proceed via Harpur Street to the corner of Midland Road and Harpur Street, ‘Boots Corner’, for the RBL Remembrance Service.
