Mayor of Charnwood’s Remembrance message

Published: Mon 7th November, 2022

"It is a personal honour and privilege to take part in this year’s Remembrance events as Mayor of Charnwood, as we come together to remember those who have died in the service of their country.

Our Remembrance parade and service in Loughborough as grown to be one of the biggest in the East Midlands and it is always a poignant reminder of the human cost of war, which we should never forget.

We are fortunate that here in Charnwood we have many services where communities come together to pay their respects and share the two minutes silence and as we do this we keep alive the memories of our fallen heroes.

There are still many conflicts taking place around the world and it is appropriate at this time to remember those for whom war is still an ongoing issue.

Please be as generous as you are able to be when buying your poppy, without this support the Royal British Legion would be unable to give much needed support to those service personnel and their families who are affected by the conflicts they have served in."

Councillor Jennifer Tillotson
Mayor of Charnwood
