Remembrance Day on Monday

The rose garden at the New Norfolk Cenotaph in High St.
A SERVICE for Remembrance Day will be held at 11am on Monday at the Cenotaph in Circle St, New Norfolk.

This is organised by the New Norfolk RSL Sub-Branch and the Derwent Valley Council. All are welcome.

The event will start at 10.45am and will include a minute's silence at 11am. The RSL invites anyone wishing to lay wreaths on the Cenotaph to do so at the appropriate time on the day.

Originally known as Armistice Day, Remembrance Day commemorates the moment that the guns of World War I fell silent at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918.

The Derwent Valley Council's forecourt car park will be closed from 8pm this Sunday until noon on Monday for the purpose of hosting the Remembrance Day service.
