Residents of Charnwood were invited to honour those who served and sacrificed themselves in the line of duty on Remembrance Sunday.

The Remembrance Sunday service took place on Sunday November 14, 2021. The parade started at 10:25am and the service began at 10:50am.

The service took place at the Carillon Tower in Queen’s Park, Loughborough. The salute took place just outside New Street Entrance Gates.

The service was led by Reverend Wendy Dalrymple, Chaplain, Royal British Legion, Loughborough Branch.

Charnwood Borough Council live-streamed the service on Facebook and provided updates on social media. People were encouraged to share their thoughts and pictures using the hashtag #CharnwoodRemembers on Twitter or by tagging us in on Facebook.

There were also Remembrance parades in villages throughout Charnwood.

Visitors were encouraged to follow current public health advice including getting both doses of the Covid-19 vaccine, washing and sanitising their hands frequently and making use of free lateral flow tests, particularly before and after the event.
