The Borough Remembers: Remembrance Sunday services 2022

Remembrance in Nuneaton

Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council will again pay its respects alongside residents to those who defended our freedoms with Remembrance services.

The Borough will come together for services held in Nuneaton, Bedworth and Bulkington on Remembrance Sunday, 13 November 2022.

Remembrance Sunday is an opportunity for people of all ages to come together and honour the sacrifices made by Armed Forces’ servicemen and women from Britain, and across the Commonwealth, as well as remember innocent civilians who lost their lives in conflict.

Those attending may choose to wear a red poppy, which is both a symbol of Remembrance and hope for a peaceful future.

These services are always well-attended, and the Council is delighted that residents throughout the Borough turn out in recognition of the sacrifices made and continue to be made.

Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council Deputy Leader, Cllr Clare Golby, said:

“Our Borough always stands proud for Remembrance. The services are always moving and of course now with the Bedworth Peace Podium as a focal point of the parade, Bedworth truly is the Town that never forgets.

“With our veterans getting older, the direct links to wars of the past are fewer and fewer and now with the age of social media and all that brings, it’s important to remind our young people why we hold these services.

“Even if you can't attend any of the services, just take a minute in silence wherever you are to pause and reflect on the battles people fought, so you can have your freedoms today."
