In the United Kingdom and other countries within the Commonwealth, a two-minute silence is observed as part of Remembrance Day to remember those who lost their lives in conflict. Held each year at 11.00am on 11 November, the silence coincides with the time in 1918 at which the First World War came to an end with the cessation of hostilities, and is generally observed at war memorials and in public places throughout the UK and Commonwealth.
We would like to invite you all to stop and join the rest of the District to mark Remembrance Sunday, in a slightly different way to usual.
Earlier this year, members across the District and Country took part in the #ScoutsClapForCarers to mark St George's Day. We thought it would be fantastic to try and do something similar which would help us reflect and remember members of our nations Armed Forces by holding Central Notts #DoorstepRemembrance .
We are encouraging Central Notts members, both young and old, to wear their Smart Uniforms, and to stand on their doorsteps, and hold their own 2 minutes silence at 11am on Remembrance Sunday to remember those who have lost their lives fighting for our freedom.
