Remembrance Sunday 2021 falls on 14 November.
Remember the service and sacrifice
It is a national opportunity to remember the service and sacrifice of all those that have defended our freedoms and protected our way of life.
We remember the Armed Forces, and their families, from Britain and the Commonwealth, the vital role played by the emergency services and those that have lost their lives as a result of conflict or terrorism.
To mark the occasion, we will be lighting the Civic Offices in Epping red from Remembrance Day on Thursday 11 November through to Remembrance Sunday on 14 November.
Services of remembrance
Chairman of Council Helen Kane will be laying a wreath at Waltham Abbey War Memorial and attending services of remembrance at St Thomas’ Upshire and Waltham Abbey church on Remembrance Sunday.
Other councillors and past chairmen will be attending services and laying wreaths at various locations across the district.
Chairman of the Council, Cllr Helen Kane said:
Remembrance honours those who serve to defend our democratic freedoms and way of life.
We unite across faiths, cultures and backgrounds to remember the service and sacrifice of the Armed Forces community from Britain and the Commonwealth and as a council Epping Forest District is proud to play its part every year.
