Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day 2020

Ceremonial Mayor of Salford, Councillor Charlie McIntyre

“Every year we mark Remembrance Sunday and pay tribute to the men and women of our armed forces, many of whom made the ultimate sacrifice in conflicts around the world.

“This year we are fighting an invisible but deadly enemy on the home front – COVID-19 - with unprecedented but necessary restrictions on our lives to try and win the battle.

“Working with the Royal British Legion, we are asking people to Remember at Home this year while we remain under attack by coronavirus.

“Staying home to pay quiet tribute to all who served and sacrificed and those who continue to serve is our sacrifice this year.”
