Ashfield District Council hosted a Remembrance service at its Urban Road Offices in Kirkby in Ashfield on Friday 10 November.

Council Officers and invited guests from the Royal British Legion observed a two-minute silence and the Chairman of Ashfield District Council, Cllr Dale Grounds laid a commemorative wreath.

As part of the Remembrance Day commemorations, a collection of knitted and crocheted poppies have been installed on Portland Square in Sutton and on the Plaza in Kirkby.

Chief Executive of the Council, Theresa Hodgkinson said: “Ashfield has a rich depth of history routed in the community and its people. It’s the same communities today that stand in silence to remember those who selflessly sacrificed their future to make sure the communities they loved, would shine through, just like the illuminated poppies across Ashfield and the knitted poppies that remind us we are all one community, and we shouldn’t forget the links that knit us together.”

Three Remembrance Day commemorations and parades took place on Sunday 12 November in Hucknall, Sutton and Kirkby. Each parade consisted of a Remembrance service, a wreath laying and a 2-minute silence at each of the cenotaphs.
