LEST WE FORGET

4 November 2015

This Sunday is, of course, Remembrance Sunday which is an opportunity for everyone to pay their respects to those who have been killed, or injured, in action whilst defending their country.

The Annual Ceremony of Remembrance will be centred on the Cenotaph in the city centre and afterwards the ceremony the parade will return to College Green, with the Lord Mayor and Lord-Lieutenant taking the salute in St Augustine’s Parade.

However next year will be slightly different, as the redevelopment of the city centre means that public viewing space is restricted and it will not be possible to use the centre for next year’s parade and service.

Instead, next year's ceremony will take place at The Memorial Stadium and The Lord Mayor of Bristol, Clare Campion-Smith said: “I am delighted to announce Bristol Rovers have very generously offered use of the Memorial Stadium for next year’s Ceremony of Remembrance”.

Bristol Rovers Chairman Nick Higgs said: "We are delighted to be able to host next year's Ceremony of Remembrance.

"It is a very appropriate venue, given that the Memorial Gates are dedicated to the rugby players of Bristol who lost their lives in the First World War and that we host our own memorial service at the gates every year at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month."

Further details will follow nearer the time
