Remembrance Day 2015

Around the world, 11th November each year is Remembrance Day. The tradition is based on the official termination of the First World War when hostilities ceased at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month (1918).

Poppies are now worn to commemorate the fallen of all wars as they were able to grow in the devastation of battle fields. They are sold for a voluntary contribution to collect money to help war veterans and their families. There is commonly a one or two minute silence every November 11th in the UK and in many countries around the world at 11:00 to remember the sacrifice of the fallen.

Paper poppies, bracelets, pins and stickers will be on sale at the reception from 9.-13.11. for a voluntary contribution. All proceeds from the sale will go to Poppy Appeal.
